Martin Gilks 1965 - 2006

Sad news reached IGUN yesterday - Martin Gilks, original drummer with the Wonder Stuff died on Sunday in a motorcyle accident.

XRRF has written a great obituary here and the excellent Wonderstuff site Room 512 is busy organising a fitting tribute.

On a personal note, Martin was my favourite ever drummer and a musician who I could have picked out on any record - I cannot think of another such talented yet distinctive drummer in rock.

He will be sadly missed.
