Fly high to glory Skiba, fly high.


It's with complete disbelief that I write this.

Skibadee came to Kool as a young, quite shy, and very determined young man. Pretty quickly he found himself working up and down the country at various clubs and raves, eventually travelling the World. As a performer he was top tier, one of the leaders in his field, a first class entertainer. As a man he was always polite, honest, and smiling. Our scene is just a cog in the wheel of music, but he was a giant who helped steer us in the right direction. Your voice, your lyrics, your smile will be massively missed.  FLY HIGH TO GLORY SKIBBA, FLY HIGH.
