Cable had been on a three-day drinking binge being before found dead in his home near Aberdare in Wales in June this year, reports the BBC.
The case has been ruled accidental death after Cable drunk whisky and vodka after returning from his local pub with a friend.
His girlfriend found Cable -- who had formed a new band Killing For Company and also hosted radio shows -- collapsed on the floor, but revival attempts were to no avail and he was dead by the time paramedics arrived at the scene.
Det Sgt Jones told the hearing that Cable was a source of pride for the drummer's local community and was "extremely well-liked."
He said, "Stuart was an extremely well-liked man. In addition to being universally liked as a person, his musical talent and accompanying fame meant he had a large fan base and he was easily recognisable.
"It is no exaggeration to say Stuart Cable is one of the most famous people in Aberdare and local people are extremely proud of him."
As previously reported by AOL Music, Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones revealed that he struggled as the band began re-issuing old records and listen to B-sides recorded with Cable on drums.
