Trevor Bolder RIP
« on: May 22, 2013, 12:12:50 AM »
I've just heard on the radio that Trevor Bolder has died.

He'll go down in history for being a member of the Spiders from Mars, but personally I'll always remember seeing him with Uriah Heep at Swansea Brangwyn Hall in 1980, one of the very first gigs I ever went to.  I was only a little kid really but I remember being hugely impressed by his playing and by his lead vocal on one of the songs.  And his facial hair!  :lol:

I never really became a huge Heep fan, but I've always had a soft spot for them and I've never forgotten that gig.

God, yet another one passes away!  :(

BKPs I've Got:  RR, BKP-91, ITs, VHII, CS set, Emeralds
BKPs I Had:  RY+Abraxas, Crawlers, BD+SM

Yep, I've just heard this too. I remeber the early David Bowie albums and his inventiveness. Sad as he ought to have had a bit longer.

Yes, i saw a post from Rotosound about this on facebook this morning.  Like you Philly, I've always had a soft spot for Uriah Heep without ever being a proper fan.  There does seem to have been a lot of deaths in the recent past, and its sad to see yet another of our valued musicians go relatively young.

And yes, he did have epic facial hair! :)
