From Facebook from Ben's Wife

"Dear friends,

We know that it will come as a shock to you as it has to us. we are all at home feeling loved and supported, and our thoughts are with all of you who knew, loved, got irritated by and were lucky enough to have a little bit of his magic in your lives. I'll post details of what's happening as soon as we have sorted everything out.

If you would like to share any photos or thoughts with us, please send them to bendaglishphotos@gmail.com - we would love to hear from you.

Sarah, Jake, Rhianna and Lottie xxx"


So I wanted to pay homage to the incredible talent that was Ben Daglish myself here, this man's music was some of the most creative, original and system limit pushing pieces. I especially valued the style and execution of his works on the Atari ST machine from which most of his work from the Gremln Graphics stable, games like 3D Galax, F.O.F.T, Northstar and the brilliant Super Cars series of games, this music for the best part made the gaming experience more involving and shine.

So this will be forever etched in my mind of truly outstanding his music was, upon hearing the news, I'm numb with shock and can only fadum how his family is dealing with the loss at the moment. R.I.P Ben, your music was enlightening as was your presence insure with the people lucky to have had the privilege of meeting you.

R.I.P Ben.
