Massive Attack announce death of “brilliant” guitarist Angelo Bruschini

Massive Attack guitarist Angelo Bruschini has died just months after revealing his lung cancer diagnosis, the band have announced.

The news was shared by the band on Twitter/X today (October 24), who described the guitarist as “a singularly brilliant & eccentric talent”.

“Impossible to quantify your contribution to the Massive Attack canon,” they wrote. “How lucky we were to share such a life together.”

Bruschini’s wife, Jessica, also shared the news in a Facebook post today, announcing that he died in the early hours of yesterday morning (October 23). “I am very sad to announce that my beautiful husband, Angelo Bruschini, died on 23rd October 2023 at 12.15am,” the post read. “It was from a rare and aggressive cancer.”

Bruschini announced his lung cancer diagnosis back in July of this year, writing in a Facebook post: “Twice now I have been told ‘Good luck’ by specialist’s at the hospital over lung cancer, I think I’m fucked! Had a great life, seen the world many many times, met lots of wonderful people, but the door is closing, think I will write a book.”

The Bristol-born artist joined Massive Attack in the 1990s after the trip hop collective formed in 1988.

He also performed for other bands including The Blue Aeroplanes, who wrote on Facebook that they were “devastated” to announce Bruschini’s passing, adding: “Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time. Rest In Peace Ange x.”

A number of tributes have poured in for the artist on social media. You can view some below.


Bruschini also played with bands The Numbers and Rimshots, and produced Strangelove‘s eponymous album in 1997. He played guitar on Jane Taylor’s single ‘Blowing This Candle Out’, which came out in 2005.
