R.I.P. David Beesmer AKA Front Row Dave

Recommended Posts

I have sad news. David Beesmer aka Front Row Dave passed away last Friday. He was 54.

I was going to mention this in the Rest in Peace thread but felt he was beloved by enough people in the Led Zeppelin community to deserve his own thread.

As most of us know, David got his moniker by being first in line at the O2 Arena for the Led Zeppelin reunion concert. He was in the front row directly in front of Jimmy Page for the concert. He loved his Led Zeppelin and he loved music and photography and loved sharing his passions with like-minded people.

I never got to meet the guy personally but enjoyed the interactions we did have through the internet. My sympathies and condolences to his family. He will be missed.

Thx for sharing, Strider. He was always friendly and enthusiastic; especially about Led Zeppelin and his videos.

R.I.P. Front Row Dave.

David P. Beesmer, 54, of the Town of Ulster died Tuesday October 29, 2019 at his home.  Born January 13, 1965 in Kingston, he was the son of the late Jacqueline (Singer) Beesmer and the late George Beesmer. 

David was a self-employed videographer and photographer. He worked with musicians, venues and municipalities to showcase local talent, local events and the beauty of the Hudson Valley. He dedicated hours of his time to work with local charities within his community. He will be fondly remembered by those who knew him as Front Row Dave.

Surviving are his siblings, Cathy Robinson, Ronald Beesmer and his wife Janet, Linda Beesmer, Brian Beesmer and his wife Judy.  Many nieces and nephews also survive.

-------------------------------

 

David's enthusiasm for life was inspiring. He once sent me a dvd of Robert Plant fan interviews he had conducted, which I still have. A good man. May he rest in peace.

Did he have the name Front Row before the O2?
