Stoke Sounds is saddened to here of the sudden passing of Quilpy (Michael Cartwright) aged 56.Mick, or Quilpy, as he was affectionately known to most of his friends was an avid supporter of live music and staged regular gigs in the Burslem area at The Huntsman, The Green star and The Red Lion. Regardless of trends he was a passionate supporter of local music and a committed to promoting live music for the last two decades. Musician and Vale Fan he was held in high regard by local bands for his no nonsense approach.
On a personal level Quilpy was a good friend of mine and I had a deep respect for his attitude and achievements. Also for the help he gave to local artists.
He will be greatly missed by many people who held him in high regard and were lucky enough to consider him a friend. He gave much to the service of Rock N Roll and lived by it’s code
The deepest sympathies of the Stoke Sounds team go out to his wife Gill and his family at this difficult time.
