Bit morbid to say it, but I wonder if it's a coincidence that his former bandmates played their biggest gig yet at the weekend?
I associate him with the time that I still liked the band. I've long since sold the second and third albums, which I had bought, but I've retained the first album and still like that to this day...
and listened to 'Word Gets Around' just 2 days ago. Still a great album. RIP indded.
For their time, at the time, the gigs they played supporting the 1st and 2nd albums (Forum, Brixton, Hackney Ocean) were some of the best for me - first time living in London, big gang of mates etc. Clearly apart from Dakato nothing's ever touched those 1st two and while I haven't listened to them for years, Word Gets Around is on teh stereo in tribute, bringing back some happy memories.
it doesn't say much. Bloody awful, 40 years old...
at the cardiff corn exchange.he didn't know how to set up his drums so my friend had to show him how.i've always kinda respected him for this....plus he got kicked out of the stereophonics.that's gotta be a good thing!!
Shocking. never a fan of the 'Phonics but he seemed like a laugh and really sad news....
never really cared all that much about his old band - even in the old days - but I thought he was consistently the most entertaining thing when they played on TV until they sacked him, will always remember his goofy expressions gurning into the cameras when they were on Top of the Pops, he seemed to epitomise "mad drummer" syndrome! anyway, sad news...
It was him that first attracted me to stereophonics with his fuzzy hair and flailing arms, still listen to their old stuff even now.
I used to absolutely bloody love Stereophonics when they first burst onto the scene and followed them all over the place in the early days. Word Gets Around and Performance And Cocktails remain great albums, but as many have mentioned above, I too lost interest in the Phonics quite quickly after this.
However, I was lucky enough to meet Stereophonics in Warrington around 1998, and Stuart Cable was genuinely a nice bloke. I also have his drumstick framed at home. Sad times, truly shocked by this.
Rumour is of him choking on his sick after a night out, shocking. So sad.
check this, when the phonics were great
because of Stuart Cable...gave me cousin a ticket when she asked him on the off chance, top bloke! Lost me trainers and me mind in Cardiff that night, brilliant!
I saw him at the AC/DC free show in 2003. Overheard him saying "The bastard sacked me", but with a huge grin on his face. Legend,
