One of the greats of the current prog scene, Geoff Banks, has passed into eternity. I only heard the news minutes ago. He and I had many intense and brilliant conversations about everything that matters in this world. May he find peace and joy in the next. . .
Here’s Sally Collyer’s tribute:
Incredibly sad to hear that we have lost Geoff Banks today, one of life’s real people if that makes sense and I am glad that I was able to call him a friend, Geoff was actually one of my very first friends here on FB and at that time little did I know that he would play such a big part in our Tangent journey – always there 100% behind us even when things weren’t going too well, certainly not a fair weather friend, he was loyal, clever, infuriatingly funny and had a huge heart and passion for the music and friends he loved…too young to leave us …. I will miss those marathon 3 hour phone calls when he would talk to us in turn until both the house phone batteries ran out such was his passion for whatever his next project was or the problem he wanted to help us solve – my love and heartfelt condolences to his family and all who loved him – there are many – Rest in peace now my friend and you are totally forgiven for all the ludicrously rude jokes and atrocious behaviour, you rocked for real, larger than life and never to be forgotten xXx
