Ian will be fondly remembered as the drummer from the extremely popular band, the BELAIRES, whose golden era on the Salisbury music scene occurred from 1962 – 1967. Ian emigrated from Zimbabwe to South Africa in 2007 and lived in Johannesburg where he remained involved in music. His death on 4 November, 2009, came as a shock to all. Ian suffered a heart attack whilst lifting speakers at his music shop. He is survived by his wife, Christine, and family.
