The following is a selection of my photographs of The Stranglers from their world tour in 2019-20 including venues in Tokyo (Nov-19), western Europe (Nov/Dec-19), Lisbon (Jan-20) and then Australia / NZ (Feb-20). Collectively they provide a tribute to Dave Greenfield who sadly passed away at the beginning of May, 2020.
I have followed the band since I was a teenager, seen them on most tours since 1979 and in 14 different countries. Dave Greenfield ‘on his massive swelling organ’ was something unique, irreplaceable and I am so grateful for the music that he helped to create which has been such a big part of my life. I met him on a number of occasions and found him to be a really great guy – friendly, unassuming and down to earth. A real hero.
Rest in peace, Dave.
