It's two years today since New Model Army drummer Rob Heaton died. New Model Army were the only band I would actively follow around in my younger days, and are probably for me the best live act i've ever seen. Rob in particular was a personal hero & I would copy his hair & clothes, though never quite managed to drum like him (some bloody chance). The clip below was from the Tube & I would repeatedly watch it on the VHS I'd taped, it was a personal epiphany. Thank you Rob.
