Dear Friends, For those of you who were not able to get along to The Queen Elizabeth Hall last...
Desperately saddened to hear the news of the death of STONER, my old brother-in-arms and bass guitarist in The Doctors of Madness. A devoted husband and father,and a loyal friend.
His role in the band cannot be over-stated. A consummate musician, his fastidiousness and attention to detail complemented my own eye for the big picture and my desire to get stuff down on tape quickly. A uniquely-gifted bass player who could smash it or caress it, he never settled for a second-best performance. An underrated backing singer on many of our songs- he will be missed by all who knew him.
My thoughts are with Elaine and Lauren.
