Craig Adams

Know the whereabouts of any ex-Sisters members or hangers-on? Got any amusing anecdotes about members of the band, past or present? Post 'em here...

Spotted him last night in Stoke with Dead Men Walking - not up on stage but lugging guitars around. What a waste! He was wearing a beanie hat and glasses and took some spotting. Did give me his autograph though. :notworthy:

He always done a spot of roading once in a while since the Cult split up back in '96(?). See here an interview with him concerning this (and you'll be surprised about who he has worked for).

doesn't being a roadie require more skill than playing bass for T'Alarm?

Talked to Mr Adams after a dead men walking gig, he looked ill and had nothing good to say about the sisters, he thinks the only thing he ever did that was any good is the stuff with the cult. He was being roadie cos he had nothing better to do, so he said, me thinks he be skint, he scrounged a fag from me.

Maybe it's just the phrasing of this post but it makes me feel sad. :(

He's has been a full time member of the Alarm for quite a few years now.
The teching has been something he seems to do on the side when not on tour.

Craig also filled in on bass for Spear of Destiny a few times. The singer, Kirk Brandon, is also in DMW.
