Trevor Bolder, pictured left [photo: Dave M. Benett/Getty Images]Trevor Bolder, the bass player who was one of the founding members of David Bowie's legendary backing band the Spiders From Mars, died Tuesday at the age of 62, after suffering from pancreatic cancer for several years.
The English musician and record producer was also known for being a member of British rock group Uriah Heep, joining them in the late 1970s and playing with them throughout his career. He appeared on the band's most recent album, Into the Wild, in 2011, and was planning to join them for their performance at the Download Festival in June, reports NME.
The famed bassist underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer earlier this year, in which he had part of his pancreas removed. "They’ve cut out the bad bit. I’ve had a bit of chemo, got to have that, which I’m doing now, in case there’s anything hanging about,” Bolder told Classic Rock magazine in February.
Bolder played on several classic Bowie albums, including Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy StardustRead More »from David Bowie’s Bassist, Trevor Bolder, Dies at 62

Willy Moon (Photo: NBC)If you’ve found yourself humming the anthemic “yeah yeah, how you like me now” chorus that set a rainbow of colorful iPods a’bouncin’ in Apple’s recent TV spot—you’re not alone. The artist responsible for the foot-stomping tune, Willy Moon, has managed to carve out a name for himself in short time as both an innovative soundmaker and style influencer.
Moon, 23, has engineered his image since leaving his native New Zealand for London at age 18. A self-described “autodidact” who dropped out of school at age 16, Moon traveled Europe and settled for some time in Berlin, where he was inspired by retro pop music and began writing his own material in earnest.
Returning to London, he adopted a sharply groomed, midcentury suit-and-slicked hair look to offset his modern-sounding musical production—a combo that attracted attention right away when he released his first single via MySpace in 2010. He scored a record deal with Island Records, who put out his first EP.
By 2012 he caught the eye of rockRead More »from It’s Easy To Say ‘Yeah’ To This Exclusive Set From Hip Newcomer Willy Moon
"I feel like new blood. I feel like something special," French Montana says as he sits in a conference room at Interscope Records in Santa Monica, Ca. He's responding to a question about how it feels to be a new artist on the legendary Bad Boy Records that over the years has boasted a roster that included Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans, 112, Black Rob and Danity Kane.
"Honestly, I feel like people want to see new blood," he continues. "I feel like everybody got something to bring to the table and Puff is like Phil Jackson. He's gone show you what way to go to get to the championship."
Puff aka Sean "Diddy" Combs has indeed provided some guidance for the Bronx-bred, Moroccan rapper. Though French has been putting out mixtapes for years, he releases his official debut "Excuse My French" Tuesday via a partnership deal with Bad Boy, Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group and Interscope.Read More »from Watch: French Montana Says He Approached ‘Excuse My French’ Like a Mixtape
