Stephen has posted what follows on his personal Facebook page and I’m so grateful because I have just felt too wrecked by sadness to come up with the words and he has captured what a wonderful and important friend Darryl has been to us. The best I can do is to add this: We felt a profound kinship with Darryl, he was a brother to us. Somehow, we’d started our adult lives from the same musical source, built our lives, careers and our families in parallel. It felt like he was somehow under the same sky that we were. He had this rolling buoyancy that was on board for it all because of his love of the music, and because of his family. We spoke so often about our shared points of reference musically, and about our families, and the perspectives that guided us in nurturing and protecting both, that we felt we knew his truly adored family even before we met them. And, as we have always felt with him, we feel he keeps us on track and supports us in the best part of what we do, in the spirit of what we do, in the reason we do it. Music saves. And we loved that guy. Catherine. --------------- This has been a hard week. The sudden passing of Darryl Weeks has left a chasm in our lives. Darryl was the closest friend I've made in my time in the music industry, a man of such exuberance and passion and goodwill that I sought his company, his opinions, his humour, long after the project of working together was finished. He was the consummate music fan and believed so much in the people that made the music he loved, that he made it his mission in life to be a music publicist, to champion music and connect people through it - to bring people together through art and show. He knew that music saves. If Darryl was feeling it, you bet you were fucking feeling it too, because he embodied the spirit of music. He would have told you he was just a fan, but he was so much more - because for all the big talk and empty promises of the music industry, Darryl was the guy who’d be there with a coffee in his hand for you after a sleepless night, Darryl would be the one crashing on the couch at the label’s office in order to see your gig on a weekday evening during a snowstorm, Darryl would be the first person greeting you as you came off stage after the gig, with his big shit-eating grin and ready to hug you hard. Every time. Seeing him coming into his own recently, working with his boyhood idols The Charlatans, standing just behind him at their gig during their POP Montreal show this past fall was one of the most satisfying things I’d seen in a long time. It was an arrival, the culmination of so many years of laying his proverbial coat down over the mud puddles of the music industry for so many others, me included, without so much a word of complaint. I watched him singing along word for word, hands in the air, head bobbing, sweating, smiling, lost in the moment with all the songs that had helped guide the way out of his youth and into a life in music. After the gig, he introduced Catherine and me to Tim Burgess of The Charlatans, who he was proud to call a friend. Despite this being his world, he knew we were also huge fans of the band and in typical Darryl fashion, he introduced us, stood back to let us have a moment with Tim, and then took a picture of Tim, Catherine and I together. Darryl, facilitating other people’s moments, as always. The band packed up, we went outside, hugged, said goodbye and see you soon, and watched him pile into a crowded van with his favourite band of all time. It was the last time we would see him. Darryl Weeks was earnest, hilarious generous and one of the finest human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Frankly there is nothing I could write about him that could do him justice. I loved this man so much. Our hearts go out to his lovely family. Xo
