Bassist Midnight Oil Bones Hillman overleden
Hij verloor op tweeënzestigjarige leeftijd de strijd met kanker.
"He was the bassist with the beautiful voice, the band member with the wicked sense of humour, and our brilliant musical comrade," zei Midnight Oil op hun Facebookpagina over bassist Bones Hillman. "Bones joined Midnight Oil way back in 1987 after stints in various Kiwi bands, most notably, The Swingers. He played and sang on every Midnight Oil recording since Blue Sky Mining and we did thousands of gigs together."
Bones deed nog mee in de reünietournee van 2017 en speelde ook mee op 'The Makarrata Project'.
