Trevor Bolder passed away late yesterday from cancer. He was 62. Bolder got his big break playing bass for David Bowie in 1971 when he replaced Tony Visconti. He played on albums such as Hunky Dory (’71), The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (’72), and Aladdin Sane (’73).
He was set to perform later this year with his current band Uriah Heep. You can read a statement from the band after the jump.
“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.”
