Kevin Wilkinson

On July 17, 1999, the rock world lost a fantastic drummer and good friend with the passing of Kevin Wilkinson. He had played with many different bands including The Waterboys, China Crisis, Squeeze, and Fish to name a few. David remembers Kevin: "He was just a wonderful guy. We first met when he auditioned for Fish. He flew up from London with another drummer and both auditioned on the same day. The other drummer elected to play first and I remember Kevin shaking his hand and wishing him the best of luck and he really meant it. You couldn't help but like Kevin, and the fact he was a fantastic drummer was just a bonus. We locked in like we'd been playing together for years. He was great fun to be with and was always a great comfort when times were tough. We worked on many projects together and it's the happy memories that remain." There is a tribute album out for Kevin that includes a track by David. Click the button to the right to find out more and hear a clip.
