Jonny Walker's friends said he was known as a popular UK busker, a street culture activist and song-writing troubadour.
His family posted on his Facebook page yesterday: 'It is with great sorrow but immense thankfulness for a passionately lived life, that after three days in the Critical Care Unit at Leeds General Infirmary, Jonny died peacefully, at 11.13am today, surrounded by family.
'During the coming days, his family ask that you allow them time to grieve.
