We were sad to learn today that Trevor Bolder has succumbed to his fight with cancer at the age of 62.

The Uriah Heep bassist was probably best known to Bowie fans for his work across four Bowie studio albums: Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and Pin Ups.

Trevor also played bass as one of The Spiders From Mars on the attendant Bowie tours along with fellow Spiders, Mick ‘Woody’ Woodmansey and the late Mick Ronson.

David Bowie had this to say about him:

 

Trevor was a wonderful musician and a major inspiration for whichever band he was working with. But he was foremostly a tremendous guy, a great man.  - David Bowie

The picture here is of Trevor and David when Ziggy and The Spiders performed Starman on Lift Off with Ayshea in June 1972.
