The family of the late Doc Neeson, co-founder and singer for The Angels, and Alberts Records head David Albert, have issued statement following the death of Doc earlier today.

The statement from the family reads, “It is with deep sadness and regret that the family of Angels singer/songwriter Bernard ‘Doc’ Neeson – loving father, family member and friend to so many – announce he has passed away in his sleep at 7.15am, today, 4th June 2014.

“He has battled with a brain tumour for the last 17 months and sadly lost his fight this morning. He will be deeply missed by his family and partner Annie Souter who would all like to thank everyone for their support through this dark time.

“We love you Dad. You couldn’t have made any of your sons more proud of you if you tried. May your beautiful soul rest in peace sweet angel, fly high.” Dzintra, Daniel, Aidan and Kieran.

“Good Night, Sweet Prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.” With love forever, Annie – borrowed from William Shakespeare – Hamlet”

Doc Neeson recorded all of his early Angels hits for Albert Records. Alberts managing director David Albert said today, “Alberts today has not only lost one of its greatest and most loved creative innovators, but also a true friend. Even within the last few months, Doc was in the building sharing his infectious passion with all at Alberts. Long after Doc is laid to rest, his distinctive sound and contribution to the local and international music industry will resonate for generations to come”

“His vibrant, charismatic personality and deep, resonant brogue will be sadly missed by all at Alberts,” the statement concludes.
