Dave has made his final journey. His funeral took place today, the 18th May 2020, at 3.30pm near his Cambridgeshire home. It was a private ceremony, through both choice and, sadly, necessity due to Covid 19 restrictions. Those friends and family who were unable to attend in person were able to view the service on line. Baz was present to pay his own tribute and those from the rest of the band were read during the ceremony, as they were unable to attend. The choice of music for the ceremony reflected Dave's life and his 35 year marriage to Pam. Sadly, on Sunday, some details were posted online giving the starting point of the funeral cortege and Pam has asked us to pass on her thanks to those who respected the privacy request and stayed away. Pam has also asked us to pass on her thanks for the numerous messages of condolence that she has received and for the generous donations to the chosen charities. If you would like to, please take time out to listen to The Stranglers' 1979 classic Ice

which features a classic Dave keyboard line and also had a deep personal meaning to Dave and Pam. Fond adieu, fly straight Dave xxx

Still seems unreal.

I wonder if they'll bother with the 'farewell-ish' tour? With only JJ left now, one or two 'finale' events may be more appropriate.

Update from The Stranglers Facebook page:

Full Final UK Tour And Album Update
Daveís death has been an absolute tragedy and mere words cannot describe our deep sense of loss and the sheer, raw emotion that we have felt over the past month. Dave was our dear friend and band mate and we will miss him forever. The loss has had an absolutely devastating effect on us as a band and weíve spent a lot of time in reflection and discussing the future. We had all been working on recording a new album, much of which is ready to mix. Dave was, of course, an integral part of our work on this new material and, therefore, we fully intend to bring the project to fruition as soon as we can get back together.
We have also been thinking of you, our fans. We have read the many posts and messages with regard to the Final Full Tour and, after much discussion, we have decided to proceed with the shows in Daveís honour. Dave was very much looking forward to this being our final, full outing so we believe itís the most suitably fitting way for all of us together to say goodbye.
JJ, Baz and Jim.

One last 'hurrah' then - or should that be 'Ker-ching!'?
