Rab Fallon Obituary, Death Cause –The news that former U.K. Subs drummer Rab Fallon, also known as Rab fae Beith, has passed away has left us in utter disbelief. During the middle of the 1980s, when the U.K. Subs were releasing records on Rab’s own RFB label, Rab most certainly left his mark on the band. You need just take a peek on Facebook to see all of the passionate tributes that are being made to Rab, in order to understand what he meant to such a large number of people.
He lived a full and colorful life. Consequently, everyone associated with the Subs, including band members and fans, would want to extend our condolences to Heather and the rest of Rab’s family. Rab was a beloved member of the band. Rab’s bandmate on the Subs’ ‘Huntington Beach’ LP and other recordings, fellow Scot Ricky McGuire, had the following to say about his friend: “So I’ve just got the extremely awful news that Rab has gone away. When I ran into Charlie Harper at the most recent Vive Le Rock awards, he informed me that Rab was ill, but I had no notion that I would receive such devastating news today. I had no idea that Rab had passed away.
We should remember Rab as a bigger-than-life figure who undoubtedly divided the crowd and who would immediately headbutt you if you crossed him. Rab deserves to be remembered as someone who was larger than life. On the other side, if he liked you, he would go out of his way to assist you and support you in every way that he could. He suggested that I go to London in order to improve my chances of getting in with a good band, and not long after that, I was playing bass with him in a band called the U.K. Subs.
