I received an email yesterday from a guy called Dan. Dan’s been down to a lot of my shows in the past, both solo and with MD, usually with his mates Tom and Robb as well. Robb was tragically killed in a car crash on 16th June this year. Dan mailed me to let me know that at his funeral, he was carried in to ‘Romantic Fatigue’ and carried out to ‘Living The Dream’.
I’m not going to try and make this my tragedy. I met Robb a few times and he seemed pretty cool, but I didn’t know him well. I just wanted to post this to say that I’m utterly blown away by this, it kind of makes everything worth it. And more importantly, that I’m sorry for his friends’ and family’s loss. May he rest in peace.
