RIP George Christie (Shields)

Another musician taken from us, again far too young and again a victim of suicide. Shields posted the following on their facebook page earlier on today:

There is no easy way to say this.

On the 31st of January our guitarist George Christie took his own life. He was the most empathetic, kind and generous person we ever met in our lives and we were lucky to call him our best friend and fellow band member.

We don’t want to disclose any more information about his passing out of respect for his family, please don’t ask. Those who need to know, know.

We will have more to say once time has passed.

Thank you
Sam, Joe, Alex, Lawrence.

Shields formed in 2013 and only last month released their latest single, “It’s Killing Me”.

If you yourself feel that you’re struggling, then there are many people and organisations you can talk to. Please reach out.
