As you may be aware, our friend and brother Stefan Cush sadly and suddenly passed away last Thursday at the age of 60. Its hard to imagine that huge personality, that presence, that voice will no longer be gracing the stage with The Men They Couldn’t Hang, regaling us with his tales and terrible jokes. Shirt of Blue, Ghosts of Cable Street, Wishing Well to name but a few, will never sound the same again. Cush was such a huge part of the band and our lives as fans the shock is immeasurable.
But, at this time of sadness, we also have to remember Cush’s family and especially his 3 children, Stanley, Joe and Imogen. Out of the blue they are without their Father and are having to deal with plans for life without him and, importantly planning and funding his funeral. We all know that the past year has been difficult for everyone financially, but any amount you can give, no matter how small, will help them and us to give him the send-off he deserves.
Thanks in advance – Nigel Williamson on behalf of Stanley, Joe and Imogen.
