June 2010 brought the sad sad news of the death of the ex Stereophonics drummer and local hearo, Stuart Cable. I was in Aberdare to cover his funeral on what was one of the hottest and brightest days of the year so far. Over 5000 people attended the funeral and lined the streets of Aberdare . His coffin was carried out to the sound of AC/DC’ s back in black played by a band made up of his friends. Here are some pics from the funeral along with some a tearsheet from the Daily Star. The Photographs of Kelly Jones and of Rob Brydon in the Star are mine.
