Friends tribute.

Lead guitarist Luke Fitton paid a moving tribute to Ben Smith on the band's MySpace site.

He said: "Ben Smith was one of my best and closest friends before and after the band. We were friends since junior school and I had some of the best times with him.

"The hurt of Ben doing what he did has come as a huge shock to myself and all his family and friends, who will miss him enormously. The reason why nothing has been put up here is because it has been so painful to put into words.

"Losing one of my closest friends is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with.

"For those who would point the finger of blame then go ahead and do so.

"It was never written in stone that this band would be together forever. It was five lads having fun together and we did.

"Some of us had to move on and we were always going to go down our separate paths and eventually our chosen careers.

"Unfortunately Ben had his reasons for doing what he did which has left more questions than answers."
