One of my all-time favourite bands. Had the great pleasure of seeing them play 'live many years ago. RIP Dave.  :'(

The Stranglers' music really was a soundtrack to my youth, and after hearing them for the first time in 1979 I was hooked. I've been lucky to have seen them a fair few times over the years, and thanks to singer Ian Prowse I was able to go backstage in Liverpool to sit and chat with them several times, memories I'll always treasure.
RIP Mr Greenfield.

Had seen The Stranglers playing a blinding set in support to Alice Cooper last year, and was looking forward to seeing them this November at their own gig - that probably wouldn't have happened anyway, given the circumstances.  I gather it was Dave's habit to sit at his instrument with a cup of tea during live performances - now that's rock 'n roll. RIP Dave.

Such a huge influence on modern electronic music - a true pioneer.

That's an awful shame.  I've seen them a few times, and they were never anything less than brilliant.  They were kind of the Beatles of electronic music.
