After leaving Stereophonics in 2003, Cable found work as a media personality, hosting his own TV show, Cable Connects, and his own radio show on BBC Radio Wales.



Having grown up in the same Welsh village as his bandmates, Cable drummed on the band’s first four albums, before being replaced by Argentinian-born Javier Weyler.

His mother Mabel, 79, said: “Stuart has travelled all over the world with the band and I have worried myself silly. He is now settled down and then this has happens. It has not sunk in yet.”

In his autobiography, published in 2009, Cable admitted to having had a cocaine problem, but said he was now clean. “When we went on tour coke was never far behind for me,” he wrote in Demons And Cocktails. “Once a show was over I turned into some kind of coke-taking zombie.”

Cable, a father of two, had moved back to the Welsh valleys and was playing with a new band, Killing for Company, at the time of his death.
