I knew him off-and-on for the best part of twenty yea as he was one of the cornerstones of the London Goth scene. No gig or club seemed to be without his presence.
It's a shock to the system and he leaves behind a lot of friends. Possibly more than he ever realised as he was a very likable and friendly bloke.
He will certainly be missed by many. Condolances to his family and friends. I hope he has a safe journey onward. Take care Dave. Sleep well.
