Stuart Cable RIP

Former Stereophonics drummer Stuart Cable has been found dead in his home in South Wales, two weeks after his 40th birthday. No cause of death has been confirmed as of yet, but it is thought that several bottles of alcohol were found on the scene.

Speaking to the BBC, Kelly Jones revealed that they had spoken on Saturday, the day of the band’s hometown show in Cardiff. “”He wished me good luck for the gig in Cardiff and his girlfriend asked me to go down to his 40th birthday a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t make it as we had commitments in London. I texted him on his birthday and said happy 40th. He said ‘I never thought I’d make it to 40’, and I said ‘Well, you’ll live to 100’. And that’s one of the last things we said to each other, which is quite strange really. But he was just a character, wasn’t he?”
