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.
Mick Box said, "Trevor was a ‘World Class’ bass player, singer & 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
Trevor's funeral is going to be held on 3rd of June 11.00 am at St Mary's Church, Beverley, Hull
Fans and friends are welcome.
All other proceedings will be a private affair, and we appreciate your understanding with this, and that the family and close friends are left in peace to carry on with the day in such privacy.
The Bolder family.

Trevor était un très grand musicien et un excellent compositeur, aucune de ses chansons ne laissait indifférent. Peut-être même qu'elles n'ont pas été assez prises en compte sur les albums live du groupe. Uriah Heep n'aura pas été épargné par les tragédies, et pourtant il est toujours là à nous surprendre et nous régaler! RIP Trevor, et "Long live Rock'n'Roll".

Travel well Trevor .. you will be missed. A passionate musician always with a big stage presence , all melody, power and technique. I remember showing up for the Number the Brave Tour and Martin Turner wasnt there any more. But you were ! A fabulous addition to another great band. I met you once briefly after The Magician's Birthday reunion show with Ken in London.
