Former Stereophonics drummer was found dead this morning (June 7)

Manic Street Preachers have paid tribute to their friend, and former Stereophonics drummer Stuart Cable – who was found dead this morning (June 6).

Cable was found in his Aberdare home at 5:30am (BST) this morning. A cause of death has not been determined yet.

Manic Street Preachers said: “Whenever you met Stuart, you always walked away with a massive smile on your face. Such a gigantic personality which was reflected in his drumming. He really will be missed. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.”

Cable was sacked from Stereophonics in 2003, and following his departure he went on to have a career in TV and radio, as well as hosting awards ceremonies.
