|I'm putting Stephanie McKay in Manchester this Thursday, Stephanie shares the same manager as Amp Fiddler. Their manager informed me the other day of the sad untimely death of Amp's only son Dorian
Amp has played Manchester many times, in fact it's how I got to know about Stephanie McKay when she appeared as one of his backing singers. I've had the pleasure of meeting him and gave me the impression he is a genuine friendly man who loves his music and respects his fans
If you're in Detroit or know people who are please pass on this information
DORIAN ANTHONY FIDDLER
Jan. 11, 1991 – May 1, 2009
Dorian Anthony Fiddler, the only and beloved son of Joseph “Amp” Fiddler and Stacey Willoughby passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on the morning of Friday 1st May 2009. He had only that week been taken into hospital and diagnosed with diabetes and after suffering unexpected complications leading to heart failure, he left us all on May 1st.
Born on January 11th 1991, Dorian was an accomplished drummer and trumpeter who had adopted his father’s love and devotion of music from an early age and pursued his own musical goals and ambitions with dogged determination and dedication. In recent years he had been a pupil at Detroit’s School of the Arts, Where he was an Honor Roll student (2008), playing in the school band as well as collaborations with other students. Latterly he also worked beats in the school studios for 3 hours every day, learning all aspects of music production. Also, when opportunity would permit, he would join his father on stage, most recently at the Ford Auto Show in Detroit in January 2009.
A memorial benefit gig will be held on Thursday May 7th 2009 from 6pm onwards at Bert’s Warehouse Theater , 2739 Russell St, Detroit.
