We recently reported on the death of local Soul DJ and former record show owner Max Millward who died suddenly of a heart attack.
It would seem that Max was not only a local legend but was also admired throughout the UK by members of soul music community. TheÂ Facebook group set up in tribute to Max now has over 1,000 members, many of whom have left very personal stories about their memories of Max.
According to the South West Soul Club’s website, Max’s funeral service will be heldÂ at St. John’s Church in Essington on Wednesday 23rd June at 1pm – all are welcome – followed by a private ceremony at Bushbury Crematorium. Details of the wake at The Stables, Brookfields to follow.
