WalesOnline: Stuart Cable's son, 10, to inherit dead rocker’s £½m
ROCK star Stuart Cable’s 10-year-old son will inherit more than £500,000 after his father died without leaving a will.
The former Stereophonics drummer left assets of £1.4m when he died on June 7 last year after a lengthy drinking session.
That was reduced to £535,000 after debts and fees were paid, which his son, Cian, will inherit.
Philip Beresford, who compiles the Sunday Times Rich List, said: “It must be from royalties and things like that coming in over the years that kept him going.
“But if he has been living a Keith Richards life I’m amazed he had so much left.”
Cable was fronting new band Killing for Company when his body was found at his home in Llwydcoed, Aberdare.
The host of BBC Radio Wales show Cable Rock once revealed he thought he needed to “slow down” after a party with Dirty Sanchez star Matt Pritchard, who broke a chair over his head.
Pritchard said he once jokingly asked the musician if he was a millionaire.
He told him: “Yes I am, why’s that?”
Legal documents this week revealed that ex-wife Nicola Cable – Cian’s mother – and Stuart’s mother Mabel Cable will look after the estate.
