RIP Robbie France
 
Just heard today that the original drummer with Skunk Anansie, Robbie France, died at the weekend. He was only 52. I had the joy of meeting Robbie back in the early 90's 2 or 3 times - he was doing loads of clinics for Zildjian at the time and a nicer, more down to earth guy you couldn't hope to meet, Paranoid and Sunburnt is still one of my favourite drum albums ever. The world is a poorer place today.

You didn't see Robbie then- that was Mark Richardson. Robbie left after recording their first an I reckon best album, Paranoid and Sunburnt.
