Does anyone know where David McComb is buried?
« on: January 04, 2007, 03:27:47 PM »
Hi there. I hope this request isn't offensive to anyone - because it certainly isn't meant to be. Just i would just be really honored to be able to pay my respects personally to the greatest songwriter that there has ever been. I am from England and am currently visiting Australia (in Perth at the moment) and i would like to know where David  is buried (if indeed he is) so i can go and pay my respects if that were possible. The Triffids were my total inspiration throughout my formative years and i feel it's only right that now i'm in Australia (finally) that i acknowledge this in some way. I hope you understand where i'm coming from and i'm not some sort of weirdo!! Which i ain't - honest! Thanks.  Sheila

Hi and welcome Sheila.Have a look at the thread"Daves final resting place" under General Triffids Chat.I`m afraid it wont much help your pigrimage.

Totally understand..If you're a weirdo then you're in the company of many here :).

Australia hasn't got around to a public memorial yet (when it does I might feel compelled to make the journey), but if you're passing through London when you're back over here there's always 27 Britton Street in Islington. Directions here.

Sheila, here are some past threads, including the one geoffm mentioned, which might bring you close (if not to the place, then at least to the emotional location).
