A real shock.  I am so saddened by this, far too young and talented to go so soon.  His voice and talent gave me great joy.

Very sad to hear this. He helped turn Big Big Train into one of the most fascinating recent prog bands, and one wishes that together they would have gone from strength to strength...

I am lost for words - unable to take in this awful news. David transformed a band I already loved into something of extraordinary depth and beauty. To say he will be sorely missed is an understatement of gigantic proportions.
