Founder guitarist Trevor Fleming of Belfast NWOBHM stalwarts Sweet Savage has passed away. A statement from the band read:
“It is with great sadness we have to report the passing of Trevor, our beloved friend and musician.
“He has not been well for the whole year and passed away early on Saturday 2nd October.”This was very sudden and we are shocked and extremely saddened with his departure.
“Trevor was the lifeblood of the band both in terms of musicianship and crack. He was funny, charming, extremely clever and deep, a unique individual who had many talents. Trevor could make anyone laugh, could write the catchiest riffs and lyrics; in fact, everything about Big T was totally infectious.
“He will be sorely missed by us all.
“God bless you, my friend!”
Not too long ago Sweet Savage were maligned on this very site; however that should be all put aside right now. Our condolences go out to Trevor’s family at this difficult time.
