Trevor Bolder, per lungo tempo bassista degli Uriah Heep, è morto per un cancro all’età di 62 anni.
Bolder era entrato negli Uriah Heep nel 1976 come sostituto di John Wetton ed aveva debuttato con la band su “Firefly” del 1977, suonando su altri tre album prima di entrare nei Wishbone Ash. Nel 1983 tornò negli Heep, partecipando a tutti i dischi pubblicati dalla band fino ad “Into The Wild” del 2011. Gli Uriah Heep hanno rilasciato questo comunicato:
“It is with great sadness that Uriah Heep announce the passing of our friend the amazing Trevor Bolder, who has passed away after his long fight with cancer. Trevor was an all time great, one of the outstanding musicians of his generation, and one of the finest and most influential bass players that Britain ever produced. His longtime membership of Uriah Heep brought the band’s music, and Trevor’s virtuosity and enthusiasm, to hundreds of thousands of fans across the world. He joined the band in 1976 and, barring one short break, was a fixture until his ill health forced him to take a step back early this year. Prior to joining Heep, he was a founder and ever-present member of David Bowie’s legendary Spiders From Mars band, performing on all of their key albums and at countless shows. He also performed with Wishbone Ash, Cybernauts and The Rats.”
