Very sad to learn that Cedric Sharpley, drummer with Gary Numan and Dramatis, has passed away following a heart attack last week. Rrussell Bell wrote on Twitter, “Just heard that my dear friend and colleague, Ced Sharpley passed away this evening. Words aren’t enough.”
Numan himself wrote on Facebook, “I’m so very sad to say that Cedric Sharpley, who as many of you will know played drums for me for many years, has died after suffering a heart attack last week. Ced was not only a truly great drummer but a gentle, fascinating and funny man to be around and he will be greatly missed. This has come as a great shock to so many of us. Rest in peace Cedric. GN.”
Thoughts and blessings to Ced’s family and friends at this sad, sad time.
