I’m so sad to hear this tragic news. Stuart and I had only recently become friends, having played on his radio show. He was a good and passionate interviewer and had a deep knowledge of music.
For instance I was very impressed that he knew who Paul Robeson was and his links with Wales. We got on so well, I felt like i had known him a long time which is a measure of his kindness and empathy. Stuart just made life bigger in every way. Whether you were in his presence or speaking to him on the phone you couldn’t help but smile and be inspired by his enthusiasm. I’m missing that big deep voice already. This is such a shock and my thoughts are with his family and loved ones. Big love to you Stuart, you have gone far too soon. X
