Dying To Rock

Posted by on July 26 at 18:50 PM

During a performance at club in Leeds last Wednesday, the lead singer of the band Bad Beat Revuedescribed by LeedsMusicOnline as “Yorkshire’s finest exponents of punked up indie rock’n’roll, and probably the most entertaining band on the Leeds/Bradford scene,” and whose name I’d never heard before todayattempted a leap from the stage onto a lighting rig and fell to his death.

Yorkshire Post report on the death of 29-year-old Patrick Sherry here.

(Cruel twist that means nothing but must be mentioned: Bad Beat Revue signed on to the show just a few hours before the gig, after another band pulled out.)
