The cousin of Andrew Taylor, as well as of ex-bandmate, Alastair Taylor, he was with the band between 2005 and 2008, playing on the ‘Obvious’, ‘Turning Circles’, ‘Dot the I’ and ‘Patchwork’ albums, and in fact appeared on Dropkick’s latest video.
“We never imagined that it’d be the last thing we would share together… he was always an amazing supporter of our music, even after he moved to London,” the band said.
