By now most people will have heard the tragic news that Steve 'Bingo' Binks has passed away.

Anyone who ever had the pleasure to meet Bingo will tell you that he was without a doubt one of the friendliest people you could meet. I can't think of a single moment in the time I knew him when he didn't have a big grin on his face. He was always down for a chat and the North East scene will never be the same again.

For anyone who lives in the North East area, Ghetto Sean has organised a jam in his honour at 5 Bridges on Sunday at midday. If you can please get down and show your respects for a great man.
