Trevor Bolder - Guitarist Trevor Bolder Loses Cancer Battle

Veteran British guitarist Trevor Bolder has lost his battle with cancer, aged 62.

The Uriah Heep bassist was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and underwent surgery and rounds of chemotherapy earlier this year (13).

A post on the band's official website has confirmed the sad news, but no further details have been released.

The statement reads, "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."

Bolder first came to prominence as part of David Bowie's Spiders From Mars band in 1971, appearing on the rock icon's albums Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane.
