Christopher John Dyke Acland
Christopher John Dyke Acland (September 7, 1966 – October 17, 1996) was a British musician best known for being the drummer in London-based shoegazing and britpop band Lush.
Acland was born in Lancaster Infirmary. He was a founder member of Lush, who formed in 1988. Lush would release three albums and a multitude of singles and EP's and have considerable critical success.
Acland was a much liked and respected member of the London music community and it was often noted how he was said to have no enemies. He was a passionate lifelong fan of football and a strong (if sometimes resigned) supporter of Tottenham Hotspur.
In 1996, Acland committed suicide by hanging himself. His bandmates in Lush were devastated and disbanded after a long period of mourning.
