Brenton Holmes was our friend and a drummer for numerous gigs. He died the other day and his old band played to his memory at his wake: Richard Manderson, Mike Dooley, Leanne Dempsey and me. A friend said at the funeral service that he sought "a life of the mind". That was so close to Brenton as Renaissance man but he was also deeply welcoming and had a strong sense of ethics built on humane principles. He died too young, not yet 70, after having to give up drums a few years earlier. Vale Brenton, you are well remembered.
RIP Brenton Holmes 1950-2018
