Very sad. Fantastic guitarist.
had birthday party on as i saw this thread. sad news.
...Rowland is on are, I think, the Just South of Heaven and Room of Lights albums, and the Dangling Man EP. His playing on all of them is fantastic. RIP.
Shivers — brilliant song
fucking gutted. Massive influence on my own guitar playing, I was hoping to see him play one day. Didn't realise he had cancer. Terrible. Very sad.
Not sure if it's much good, but I had to do it.
to watch them properly yet (internet connection is dodgy at the moment) but from pictures I've seen, he looked a hell of a lot less drawn than in the late-eighties.
Thanks. Just felt compelled to, I think he went unappreciated for a long time. Now going about filling in the RSH-shaped gaps in my record collection...
Roland Howard, Vic Chenutt and Jack Rose all gone in the space of a few weeks :(
Crime were always the band I meant to check more of out, but what I liked I heard.
