Dan Lucas

dis writer Dan lucas has passed away.


Was in shock all yesterday. Came out of nowhere. The DiS writers community is really lovely behind the scenes and Dan always made a really big impression

Yeah, this came from nowhere. A really good lad I’m happy to have had the pleasure of knowing.

Fucking hell, a great writer. Lost for words.

Never twigged he was the same bloke who wrote for the Guardian. Absolutely no age to go, horrible stuff.

I don’t know what to say
people shouldn’t die in their 30s

We never spoke but I enjoyed your work Dan
Thoughts to your family and loved ones, may you rest in peace.



So sad and sudden this. I only met him a couple of times and he seemed like a lovely and funny guy, who really cared about what music and cricket means to people.

Enjoyed his DiS pieces a lot, I always noticed his byline and looked forward to reading them. Very sad to hear.

Grim : (

What, fuck? :frowning:

He fell off a bus a few days ago and broke some bones in his foot and ankle and this seems to have triggered something far more serious.

Oh wow :frowning2:

Heard yesterday, didn’t know him personally but he was a great writer and I understand a great person. Very tragic, thoughts go out to his friends and family x


Always enjoyed your writing Dan, very sad to hear of your passing.

Rest in peace.

Let’s honour his memory by gathering his greatest hits.

I don’t usually like hatchet jobs, but as hatchet jobs go, this one comes from a very good place.

What a terrible loss. RIP.


Totally awful and really sad.


Lovely fella. I wrote this about how I knew him…

Best DiS reviewer. Devastating.


Always enjoyed his reviews and by all accounts was a lovely bloke :frowning: RIP
