Patrick was Veronica Falls’ drummer, and made solo music as Boys Forever/Basic Plumbing. He was a dear son, brother, uncle and friend, and we loved him dearly. His family are immensely proud of all he achieved. We’re asking for any donations to be given to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, who were an invaluable support for Patrick.’

Marion Herbain (Veronica Falls bandmate) wrote on Instagram, ‘Everything hurts and it’s been hard finding the right words while dealing with feelings ranging from complete heartbreak to remorse. It hasn’t fully sunk in yet, but I’m glad I got to spend some of the best years of my life by your side, as a bandmate and a friend. RIP, P. dogg.’
