At the time of his death, after a three-day drinking bout, he had consumed five times over the drink-drive limit, a post-mortem report revealed. His girlfriend, Rachel Jones said that he was trying to lose weight before going on a tour with his new band, Killing For Company. Believing that vodka was lower in calories compared to other drinks, Cable underestimated the strength of the drink.  And so, a successful career in the media, presenting programmes on Kerrang Radio and XFM South Wales was lost along with his life.
