The Bolder Record Bar in Gypsyville (this was a family owned shop – it was run by mum and dad in the Bolder family – whose most famous son Trevor recently sadly passed away. Trevor being in the Spiders from Mars with Bowie and Mick Ronson and latterly in Uriah Heep.) Comment: Peter Greendale.

Rock star David Bowie has paid tribute to his former bassist Trevor Bolder as a "major inspiration and a "tremendous guy" after he died following a battle with cancer. Hull musician Bolder, who played guitar with Uriah Heep and The Spiders From Mars, was 62.

He joined Bowie's backing band in 1971 alongside East Yorkshire pals Mick Ronson and Mick 'Woody' Woodmansey. They played on classic albums including Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane. Bowie said: "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." Read more.
