Gothobit: Gary Biddles

Gary Biddles, Cure roadie turned collaborator, has died.

Biddles made deep connections with The Cure - as Slicing Up Eyeballs remembers, he was briefly lead singer during a last-night jam session on the Pornography tour - and was the first call for former Cure members putting together bands. He was co-founder of Fools Dance when Simon Gallup had his time out from the band; after Gallup returned to Robert Smith's side, Biddles joined Lol Tolhurst in exile in the band Presence.

Presence recorded two albums, but the second had never been heard in public until last month, when it turned up on Soundcloud:

Biddles was interviewd by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer a couple of years back.

No details have been made public about Biddles' death.
