Rotosound endorsee Trevor Bolder has been working on new Uriah Heep (UH) album, which will be released mid April. After which they have a 7 week European tour followed by some large festivals and further dates in Asia and Australia.

English rock bassist Trevor Bolder is best known for his long association with Uriah Heep, although he has played alongside a variety of musicians since the early 1970s. He recorded many of the classic David Bowie albums including Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, Aladdin Sane and Pin Ups.

Trevor lists his career highlights as: playing Carnegie Hall with David Bowie, UH’s first gig in Russia (1987) followed by their 6 week tour of Russia in 1989/90 where they played all over Siberia and were only the second band to tour Russia and then the Chicago festival on the lake with Wishbone Ash where he got to see Muddy Waters play.

Trevor has used the Roto swingbass 66 guitar strings since the early 1970’s to record all these great albums. When asked why, he said ‘Roto’s hold their brightness which means I don’t have to change strings so often’. These are the most popular Roundwound bass string ever, they are produced by using unique steels and a highly secretive manufacturing process in all popular gauges and scale lengths.
