Tribute paid to SVIIB frontman

Ben Curtis SVIIBInterpol’s Paul Banks has been paying tribute to School of Seven Bells frontman Benjamin Curtis (pictured).

Curtis was diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma in February 2013 and passed away on December 29th at the age of 35.

Writing in the new edition of NME, Banks remembers Curtis as someone “who was gentle and soft spoken and yet he always seemed to be alight”.

“There was a fire inside him that came through as a powerful charisma on or off stage. He was special. I used to refer to him as ‘Mr Mojo’, to portray what I felt was his indelible magnetism.”

Banks adds that Curtis leaves “an incredible legacy. He will always be an inspiration for me and anyone else who was blessed to spend time with him, see him perform, or hear his music. In all of his endeavors he brought a signature presence – style, poise and fury.”
