LEWISHAM, LONDON – Professional musician Matthew Dibble died after suffering a brain haemorrhage shortly after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine the Dailymail reports. Dibble had attended hospital with a minor headache in May but a CT scan did not reveal anything of concern, so he was discharged. However, two days later he was found ‘drowsy and atonic’ by his mother, who called an ambulance. Dibble was rushed to King’s College Hospital where he was diagnosed with a ‘right side haemorrhage’ caused by ‘extensive cerebral venous sinus thrombosis’.
The musician immediately underwent an emergency craniectomy, the temporary removal of part of the skull, and burr hole surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. However, he then developed further swelling, which was described as a ‘catastrophic event’ and died in hospital on May 12th.
A page created by Mr Dibble’s ‘loving friends’, said:
“His death was an unjust and devastating tragedy for his loving family. He was one of four close brothers, and an adored uncle to three girls and three boys.
To them, as well as his friends and fellow musicians, he was an individual of uncommon kindness, who was relentlessly considerate to everyone he knew, despite the well-known struggles of a life dedicated to music.”
His friends added that award-winning pianist Freddy Kempf had agreed to record the compositions that Dibble had worked on for the previous 6 years, finishing them just weeks before his tragic death. Kemp pledged to ‘explore options to publish the recording around the world’.

Dibble’s death marks the second UK professional musician to die after the AstraZeneca vaccine, following the death of rock musician ‘Zion‘ in June this year after suffering a brain haemorrhage.
