Biography

Stuart Cable (19 May 1970 – 7 June 2010) was a Welsh rock drummer and broadcaster, best known as the original drummer for the band Stereophonics.

When Cable was 10, his father died. Thereafter, Cable and his elder[ brother Paul, were raised by their mother Mabel (born 1930) on her own. Cable grew up in the close-knit village of Cwmaman near Aberdare , He attended Blaengwawr Comprehensive School with his friend, Stereophonics singer-songwriter and guitarist Kelly Jones, who also lived on the same street.

Together with Kelly Jones’ school friend Richard Jones, the trio began playing covers in working men’s clubs from 1992, under the title Tragic Love Company. The band later changed their name to The Stereophonics in 1996.

Prior to committing fully to the Stereophonics, Cable also played for other bands, including as a vocalist for Rhondda band NailBombs.

After being sacked from the Stereophonics in September 2003, Cable later became the temporary drummer for hard rock band Stone Gods, which was formed by former members of The Darkness, filling in for Ed Graham during 2008 who had left the band for health reasons.
