    still cool seeing them with Gillan, and Tredegar had promise, I like Tony's solo stuff too.

    Ah memories, early 80s, If I remember correctly. ,at the Gillan show Budgie played Black Velvet Stallion, and I think Bernie Torme was with Gillan at the time. It was a long time ago.

    This sad announcement has provided a new band for me to look into.

    Thanks for posting.

    Man I wish I could rediscover Budgie all over again... One of the hardest rocking bands of all time!

  11. I love(d) his voice and their music. Another sad loss to the World of Music.
