Trevor Bolder died in 2013, too young at 62, so this tribute album was a long time coming. Although best known as a bass player, Bolder was also both a songwriter and a record producer. He began his musical career with Mick Ronson, and like Ronson played with Bowie. He had a short tenure with the legendary Wishbone Ash which included their classic 1983 concert at the Marquee, but he is best known for two long stints with Uriah Heep – 1976-81 and 1983 until his death; two members of the band have died this year.
