It is with great sadness to announce that John Thomas has passed away…

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that on Thursday 3rd March John Thomas suddenly passed away. John had not been well for some time but his sudden death has shocked us all. The precise details are not yet known but JT was admitted to hospital on Thursday after a fall at home and whilst in hospital he suffered a cardiac arrest and could not be resuscitated. Our thoughts are with John’s family and we remember all of the great times we had with John, a man who bludgeoned his way into Budgie in 1979 adding a freshness and vitality to the band that resulted in many memorable live performances and recordings. An extremely talented guitarist respected and admired by other musicians with a stage presence that never failed to please. John will be missed by many especially the lucky people who got to work with him and become his friends. So from your Budgie mates Burke, Steve and Paul and everyone associated with Budgie over the years,  God bless JT and lets hope that where you are now there are Marshall amps with a volume control that goes up to 11.

Latest Update 20th November

I’d like to say sorry to all the Polish and Czech fans for the recent cancellation of the tour dates. This is because I became ill just before the tour began and had to have emergency surgery in Poland. I’m now recovering at home and I don’t yet know what the future holds.Thanks to all those who supported me particulary the Polish surgeons. Thanks also to all those who sent messgaes and thanks to God the Father and Jesus Christ my saviour and the Holy Spirit.
