Uriah Heep Bass Player, Trevor Bolder Passes Away
British hard rock legends Uriah Heep have announced that bass player, Trevor Bolder, has passed away after a lengthy fight with cancer. He was sixty two years old.
Bolder was previously a member of David Bowie's band, The Spiders From Mars, before joining Uriah Heep in 1976 and remaining with the group until earlier this year when his health forced him to take a break. A message from his bandmates reads as follows:
"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 long time 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."
Guitarist Mick Box added: "Trevor was a world class bass player, singer and songwriter, and more importantly a world class friend. He will be sadly missed by family, friends and rock fans all over the world. We are all numb to the core."
