Dave Clarke: an apology

Those of you who have followed me for a while will be aware that I think it’s sometimes necessary to apply pressure onto people who aren’t being entirely honest or refuse to do the right thing. Hence why I’ve pursued the likes of Sterling Void in quite a vehement manner.

That said, I also believe that I should accept when I get things wrong. And I’ve certainly got things wrong in the case of the self-styled Baron of Techno, Dave Clarke. I recently claimed that Clarke’s integrity was “increasingly questionable” in this post.

Since the time of publishing, new information has come to light which means that I retract that claim in its entirety. I now fully accept that Dave Clarke wants the same thing as many of us – namely to see Derrick May held to account for his actions. He just chooses to express himself in a different way, and that isn’t a bad thing.

I apologise unreservedly to Mr Clarke.
