That's the saddest part mate. The man was a wrecking ball when on-song, yet he rests
in what must be a numbered plot, or a grave with no stand out features. A few thousand $$$ would see a more appropriate setting. A nice headstone for starters, atleast.
I'm suprised there is not a small army of fans in the USA who dedicate much of their time to this kind of effort. FFS!! Darcy's vault is close to US$80,000... That money raised in very short time. I also hope to see the Big Cat shown some posthumous respects... SOON!!
