Jeff Fletcher (Northern Uproar) – RIP

665

Dei Northern Uproar ne avevamo parlato recentemente all’interno dello Speciale Britpop 25 anni dopo. Una rivampa dispensabile che purtroppo non li riportava ai fasti dei due album datati 1996 e 1997. La notizia tragica riguarda la morte improvvisa del chitarrista Jeff Fletcher avvenuta all’età di 36 anni. Il musicista (che aveva lasciato la band lo scorso 2013) è stato investito da un camion a Stockport lungo la Wellingdon Road South. Le gravi ferite riportate alla testa non gli hanno dato scampo. Sul profilo Facebook della band viene così ricordato:

“Our Jeff would not believe the amount of love and concern everyone is showing. He was a quiet man, he didn’t do facebook. Most that have met him say the same – a gentleman, talented and very, very funny. Our thoughts and love to Jeff’s family.”

Il cantante Leon Meya: Jeff was a gentleman and my friend since the age of five, we grew up together and went through school. He was a genius and learned the guitar in six months. He was the principle songwriter, he could make melodies, sing and was a good performer. He made the sound of Northern Uproar, we were a great team. Jeff was recognised as a great guitarist, his guitar work was amazing. He was such a lovely caring bloke, I will miss a proper friend”.
