    Default RIP Lewis Marnell

    Just seeing online in the last few minutes that Lewis Marnell passed away recently. Don't know any details but rumor is that it was due to diabetes.

    Almost is one of my favourite skate teams, and this is a really sad loss. That dude shredded. RIP
    Edit: Can I ask where you heard this, because I can't find anything on it

    Wow, that's crazy. I remember his part in Cheese & Crackers from when he first got on Almost. Great skater.

    I had the distinct pleasure of hanging out with him a couple of times and although I didn't know him very well, he was a quite clearly lovely person too.

    Is there any source on this? I really don't want to believe this. One of the sickest skaters out there.

    No official word from Almost yet but The Mobbin' Deep crew seem pretty cut up about it and have posted on it.

    Re-posting what I left on the Almost facebook page this morning. I found out thru Levi Hawken (Nek Minnit) before I went to bed last night.

    " R.I.P. Being a diabetic Aussie brother means I really took a bond to the way this guy skated. I admire those who stand up in the face of this ****ty illness and live a full, active lifestyle. Much respect & love Lewis."

    "P.s. Don't start throwing diabetes on the rumour mill. I don't know how he passed and that is not important right now."

    I've had a few occasions where I've been all here one minute and the next I'm doing slappy's on the curb just outside The Pearly Gates. It happens very quickly, easily and sometimes without warning. Lewis' passing really sucks and If I can wish nothing more I hope his passing was easy on him be it from this pointless disease or otherwise.

    Have a skate just for him today. I did.

A few days later he shoots me a PM asking me "what do you think?""

    That really sucks, loved his 5 incher part
    Kickflips and 360 flips are ****

    We were all off our faces on mushrooms when we recorded Plug In Baby... There was this big field next to the recording studio filled with them. So we ate them all. I don't know what we were doing, but we all ended up naked in a jacuzzi and I went deaf in one ear from falling asleep in the sauna... Matt Bellamy
