Frank Turner covers Frightened Rabbit's 'The Modern Leper' in tribute to Scott Hutchinson


Fighting back the tears, Frank Turner covered Frightened Rabbit song ‘The Modern Leper’ at the Camden Roundhouse last night.

It was with a heavy heart that Far Out reported the news that the body found in relation to Scott Hutchinson’s disappearance was confirmed as the Frightened Rabbits singer.

Having been last seen on CCTV footage after visiting the nearby Dakota Hotel, fears grew for the 36-year-old when he reported missing in the early hours of Wednesday after he posted a string of worrying Tweets on social media.

Turner, who was a close friend of Hutchinson, put together an emotionally charged performance in tribute on the day the news was confirmed.

“What a shining, beautiful life,” he wrote on Instagram. “I remember Scott giving great Scottish hugs, cracking jokes, apologising for being drunk, always being kind. He lit up the sky with his voice, his songs, his heart, and I will forever be in awe of his genius.

“He was the kind of guy who, if he came up in conversation, people would talk over each other, in a hurry to say how wonderful he was. He was my friend and today I am heartbroken. Talk to someone, don’t try to keep it all inside.”
