Spiders From Mars and Uriah Heep Stars Speak At Trevor Bolder Funeral
Woodmansey, who was among the 600 present at St Mary's Church, Beverly, tells the Hull Daily Mail: "I am honoured to have known him as a friend.
"He was one of the few friends you might not see for a few years – and yet, meeting up with him again, it was as if you'd only seen him yesterday.
"He was a world-class bass player. You've just got to read the list of who he played with: David Bowie, Wishbone Ash, Uriah Heep. He did what he wanted to do and he made a difference. I'm going to miss him."
Heep mainman Mick Box admits he was reduced to tears during the ceremony. "I very much respected Trevor as a bass player, a singer, a songwriter and a friend," he says.
"He was never one to go on about his previous successes; he was modest to the core and very quiet – unless he had a few brandies inside him! He was a deep thinker, really quite spiritual." more on this story
