Greg Gilbert, who was the singer of English Indie band Delays, has died at the age of 44 following a battle with cancer. The news was confirmed by his brother on social media.
Aaron Gilbert wrote: “Your messages, your encouragement and your compassion have been our oxygen for the last five years.
“He was my brother and my best friend, and we did everything together.
“It was the greatest honour to be with him as he took one last gentle breath before leaving us. I could have sworn we were limitless…”
He continued: “Thank you for sharing our grief, and for making it easier to carry at times while you were firefighting battles of your own.
“And thank you for making Greg such a special person in your lives. I’m so glad we all existed at the same time.”
“We’re only temporary, let’s make our temporary extraordinary.”
