Maybe not so well known over the pond, but familiar to most of us old rockers as a founder member and bass player of Status Quo.

Anyone in the US who was around then must surely remember Pictures of Matchstick Men--it was a mega-hit over here.  For decades I never heard of them again until I was playing "Whatever happened to . . . " [groups/artists I remember from back then] and stumbled onto some Status Quo concerts/videos on YouTube.  I was amazed to learn they were still rocking all those decades later and definitely enjoyed what I heard in the videos. 

RIP

Sad news.

I wonder.... did anyone on the Cakewalk forums ever cover that song?

I never knew the names of the guys in the group but I knew some of their music. Everyone, well, everyone of a certain age and above, knows Pictures Of Matchstick Men over here. Sad to hear he's gone.
