Haven't a clue who they are but as a mum my heart goes out to them for the loss of their beautiful boy sad

Nick Cave has been such a presence in my life, and his music has seen me through some very tough times.

I'm a little taken aback by how much this has upset me.

MeganChips Wed 15-Jul-15 14:06:06

Tragic, poor family.

MitzyLeFrouf Wed 15-Jul-15 14:07:21

Horrendous. Poor Arthur, poor Cave family.

How awful.
I recently introduced six-year-old DD to some of NC's more accessible music (Red Right Hand and 15 Feet) and she loves it. It'll be sad to hear it now because even though he makes dark music he always came across as a really nice guy who just liked to explore the underside of life.

Now, sadly, he's going through every parent's worst nightmare. Just horrible.

Oh god. How terrible.

I saw his film a while back (20,000 days on earth) and there were scenes with him and his boys in them, they came across as so tight-knit and close, lovely to see.

I used to sing Into My Arms to my children when they were babies.

I think that's what's making me cry.

MrsWickens Wed 15-Jul-15 14:14:04

Oh that is so sad. RIP Arthur.

How utterly tragic, how awful for them.

DollyParsnip Wed 15-Jul-15 14:40:33

It's really got to me too, just so unbelievably sad. My thoughts are with him and his family.

LovelySpread Wed 15-Jul-15 14:43:33

Me too. He's been a huge part of my life for nearly thirty years. Heartbreaking for the poor poor family.

Awful terrible thing. Susie was always one of my favourite models and I have loved Nick Cave's music for many years. Devastated for them.

So sad.

SophiePendragon Thu 16-Jul-15 10:23:22

I just searched to see if there was a thread. sad

I am so sorry for them all.

I didn't realise they lived here, I didn't even know he was married till a few months ago. But what a gorgeous family and what a complete tragedy.

All thoughts are with them xxx

Jesus, that is tragic. What a gorgeous boy and a terrible loss for his family.

I used to sell the big issue, and nick cave would come stalking down the road looking like a bat, with two boys in a pushchair. He was always lovely and generous, and I would think how lovely it was he always seemed to be with them. It made me cry, all the more shocking cos I live so close, but Jesus, you'd have to be made out of stone to not feel sad about it

Samcro Thu 16-Jul-15 10:51:32

how very sad

ebwy Thu 16-Jul-15 10:55:49

that's awful. (I do know who his father is, and like his music, but it would be awful no matter who it is.)

feebeecat Thu 16-Jul-15 11:00:17

So very sad

silverglitterpisser Thu 16-Jul-15 13:53:39

I feel upset too. Just heartbreaking for any parent but especially one who seems so devoted. R.i.p Arthur </3

AnyFucker Thu 16-Jul-15 15:50:53

I hope with all my heart that young man did not suffer.

Laquila Thu 16-Jul-15 15:53:23

Oh Lord that's horrendous. OP, it's thinking of the lyrics to Into My Arms that's making me cry too. How anyone can carry on after that sort of tragedy is always an absolute mystery to me, but so many people do and I'm in awe of them all, and terribly sorry for those who don't feel they can.

Tragic.

Only watch if you have tissues to hand.
