Sad news about the passing of Dave Greenfield if The Stranglers.

I have tickets for the last tour in October but I can’t see it happening.

they have been a large part of my life from the age of 14 and he will leave a big gap in my life.

Very sad.  The Stranglers were a major part of my musical upbringing and Dave's influence on their sound was never less than front-and-centre.

Was listening to a bit about him on 6 music earlier on. Will be sadly missed.

Rotten news, whilst I was never a major fan I did really like a lot of their material, The Stranglers were one of “my” teenage bands.

Very sad news, saw them many, many, many years back at Wembley Stadium along with AC/DC and The Who, loved their first few records, RIP Dave :(

I was gutted to see this last night. I love the stranglers and they do not get anything like the recognition they deserve. As a kid their irreverence was striking and spoke to me as a grumpy teenager. This performance from Dutch TV is my favourite of any band anywhere ever. I understand that they wanted to play live but were told they couldn’t so this was their response.

Very sad to hear this and he died from covid too. The Stranglers are one of 3 or 4 bands I've stayed with all my music listening life. Other than JJ's bass it was Dave's keyboard playing that largely set them apart from the herd.

Always loved DG's keyboards on their Walk On By cover, particularly the beautiful and hypnotic solo.

Very sad news, I am glad I was lucky enough to finally see them in 2017.

RIP Dave

Saw them many times in my youth when they were truly awesome (Hugh Cornwell era) for the No More Heroes/Black and White/The Raven Tours and last time with The Rezillos supporting.....

Dave Greenfield was one hell of an important integral innovative irreplaceable part of the Stranglers sound and it sure won’t be the same without him!

”Go Dave!” ....Rest in Peace!

Damn that’s bad news. One of my keyboard influences when i was growing up. I went and got a Wasp synth after seeing Dave play one. Saw them a few times in concert.

Only found this out a short while ago. What a shame. Love the first few Stranglers albums. They were always my favourite of the bands associated with punk.
