A guitarist for Massive Attack has died following a battle with lung cancer, the band has confirmed.
Tributes have been paid to Angelo Bruschini by his bandmates and family and friends.
Massive Attack wrote on X: “A singularly brilliant & eccentric talent. Impossible to quantify your contribution to the Massive Attack canon.
“How lucky we were to share such a life together.”
Bristol-born Angelo Bruschini joined the group in the 1990s.
Aside from performing with several bands, Bruschini produced alternative rock band Strangelove’s eponymous album in 1997. He also played the guitar for Jane Taylor’s track Blowing This Candle Out, released in 2005.
In a public post on social media in July, Bruschini wrote that he had been suffering from lung cancer and that several specialists had wished him “good luck”.
He added: “Had a great life, seen the world many many times, met lots of wonderful people, but the door is closing, think I will write a book.”
