A couple from the Isle of Man have paid tribute to a Manx TT rider who passed away last month via a cover song by The Killers.

Juan and Jo Callister recorded their own version of 'Human' by the American rock band, replacing some of the lyrics to commemorate 30-year-old Dan Kneen.

Hundreds of people took part in a memorial lap on Saturday morning to pay tribute to the popular rider.

Jonathan Woodward shared the version via Facebook.

Bit of a long story this but years ago on a night out during TT with Dan, Human by the Killers was playing, and some lads who had been at the NW200 that year with him starting substituting 'Dancer' for 'Dan Kneen' while singing along to the song. Ever since then, every time we hear Human on the radio we have sung 'Dan Kneen' instead of 'Dancer' and the lyrics developed from there. Juan Callister and Jo Callister generously said they'd record it, and here is the product of that. Our little tribute to a top lad.
