On Friday we learnt of the sudden passing of Richard Turner. Rich played trumpet in our live gigs on and off for three years. He was an utterly exceptional musician and his contributions to our shows will be hugely missed.
He was also an accomplished and admired composer. Here’s some music he wrote for his own band Round Trip.
You can see him warming up and emptying his valve in this video taken before our gig at Benicassim this year.
On tour he was much envied for his ability to fall asleep at will however uncomfortable the bus, plane, car or train.
RIP to an unbelievable musician and friend.
