“They keep doubting the flame, tossing the blame” June 7, 2010

Stuart Cable RIP

This is quite unusual for this blog but this will be two days in a row with a post about someone dying. Let’s hope there’s not another one tomorrow. Yesterday it was photographer Brian Duffy and today it has been reported that Stuart Cable former drummer of the Stereophonics and current drummer of Killing For Company has been found dead in his home. He was only 40 years old. I thought my Dad died relatively young, but even he just made it to 70. Someone dying as young as Stuart has just doesn’t seem right does it?

I have never been a massive fan of the Stereophonics, but I have liked a number of their songs. I must also confess that I have never listened to Killing For Company until today. They were due to play the Download Festival this coming weekend, although that gig is now unlikely to happen.

In addition to his drumming career Stuart was also a DJ for BBC Wales and Kerrang Radio based in Birmingham. He was also a presenter on the short-lived XFM Wales

My thoughts go out to his friends and family and I would like to end this post by celebrating his life with a few great songs;

A Thousand Trees” – Stereophonics

Handbags And Gladrags” – Stereophonics
