Tragically, this week musician Derrick Dalton passed away.

He was a fine songwriter, guitarist and Rickenbacker lover as well as a gentle soul, a lovely person and a great laugh. He was a huge supporter of music in Dublin and I bumped into him and Laura at countless gigs, big and small, local and international.

Over the years, Derrick played variously with Hey Paulette, Mexican Pets, Crumb and with his own project Aeromodeller.

He will be much missed and my sympathies are with his wife Laura, his family and his many friends.

R.I.P. Derrick.
