Celebrating the life of David George Dyde


If you have come to this page it is not by accident, it is because you were in some way touched by knowing Dack.
You may be his immediate much loved family, one time or long-time lover, extended family, long-time friend, a musician who played with him, workmate, or simply knew him through his music (150,000 video views on his YouTube channel, someone was listening!)
..Whatever the case, he left us all a legacy, he was a wordsmith of exceptional talent. In his writing he expressed his politics, frustration, anger and hurt, but most overwhelmingly, his absolute passion for life and his love.
He did not describe himself as the perfect man who always did the right thing, he said it how he saw and felt it. If you met him, you could not ignore him, loved or liked by each of us, handsome intelligent and unforgettable. Here on this page are some of his days of glory, once again, center stage where he always belonged..........
