Clunk remembers Dave Greenfield: The Stranglers keyboard player has sadly passed away.

Dave Greenfield gave The Stranglers that unique sound, making them a lot more than just another punk band. In fact, it was Dave that wrote the band’s biggest hit ‘Golden Brown’.

JJ Brunel said  “On the evening of Sunday May 3rd, my great friend and longstanding colleague of 45 years, the musical genius that was Dave Greenfield, passed away as one of the victims of the Great Pandemic of 2020. All of us in the worldwide Stranglers’ family grieve and send our sincerest condolences to [Greenfield’s wife] Pam.”

Jet Black  “We have just lost a dear friend and music genius, and so has the whole world. Dave was a complete natural in music. Together, we toured the globe endlessly and it was clear he was adored by millions. A huge talent, a great loss, he is dearly missed.

Hugh Cornwell “He was the difference between The Stranglers and every other punk band. His musical skill and gentle nature gave an interesting twist to the band. He should be remembered as the man who gave the world the music of Golden Brown.”
