June and on Monday his funeral was held in his home town of Aberdare. As well as friends and family, thousands of fans lined the streets as the horse-drawn carriage took his coffin, decorated with an AC/DC trade mark lightening flash, to Saint Elvan’s church where a private service was held. The service was relayed to the crowds outside by loudspeakers and contained a mixture of Welsh hymns & rock music.
I was never a massive Stereophonics fan but I enjoyed his BBC Wales chat show, Cable TV. He was a very funny man and was clearly well loved by many in Wales. He will be saddly missed.
