Sad news - I occasionally used to drink in his pub some years ago (The Windmill in Somersham near Cambridge) where he came across as a thoroughly nice bloke. On a quiet evening we'd sit and talk music. A great innovator with one of my favourite bands of his era.

Sleep well Dave, and thank you.

His keyboard playing was what made The Stranglers stand out from the other bands of that period ,  he was unlucky that he caught it while in hospital for another condition .

RIP Dave .

This is my favourite Stranglers track "Grip " video from 2015 , Dave's standout keyboards on this track are brilliant , band accompanied by Simple Minds .

Thanks for that Barry - what a sound! Tight as a new facelift. :^

JJB was always one of my bass guitar 'gods' back in the day.
