Stereophonics still haunted by Cable
Stereophonics are still reminded of Stuart Cable every time they hear their old songs.
The Welsh rockers are still coming to terms with the passing of their original drummer, Stuart Cable - who died after a night of heavy drinking with friends in June - and bassist Richard Jones still finds it difficult to listen to their early records.
Richard said: "When you go back out on the road and you're playing those songs again, or even hearing them. Even just last week, somebody was playing 'You Gotta Go There To Come Back', and just listening to him playing drums, it kind of comes back again."
Frontman Kelly Jones said that despite splitting with Stuart, he has always kept in touch and is now helping his family to come to terms with the tragedy.
Speaking at the Virgin Media V Festival, he told Absolute Radio: "Stuart's always with us and always has been, and we've talked quite a lot for the last five or six years, right up until the point where he passed.
"We kept in touch with his family a lot and his girlfriend, and I think it's helped them speaking to us, because we obviously were as close to him as they are really, It's been strange looking out in and sometimes people having RIP Stuart and stuff like that."
Stereophonics' first two albums, 'Word Gets Around' and 'Performance and Cocktails' will be re-released as special edition box sets and the band this week announced they will play two special shows to celebrate in London. On October 17 the band will perform 'Word Gets Around' in full and on October 18 they will play 'Performance and Cocktails' in its entirety. Both shows take place at the capital's Hammersmith Apollo venue.Posted on 26 Aug 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
