Robert "Throb" Young (Primal Scream) – RIP


“Very sad news to report. Robert “Throb” Young died this past weekend in Hove. (Thanks to Mani) He was apparently working with Duffy on a project”. Tragica notizia quella della scomparsa del bassista “originale” dei Primal Scream Robert Young. Quando da Glasgow si trasferiscono a Brighton Young passa alla chitarra e il basso viene preso da Henry Olsen (già al fianco di Nico). La storia e i successi sono noti. Young abbandonerà la band durante le registrazioni di ‘Riot City Blues’ (al suo posto Barrie Cadogan) per i problemi legati alla droga che lo avevano da sempre tormentato. Le cause del decesso non sono state ancora rese note.

Bobby Gillespie e Andrew Innes:

We have lost our comrade and brother Robert Young. A beautiful and deeply soulful man. He was an irreplaceable talent, much admired amongst his peers, In the words of Johnny Marr “Throb with a gold top Les Paul – unbeatable”. He was a true rock and roller. He walked the walk. He had “Heart & Soul”
tattooed on his arm and i¹m sure on his heart too. He once said to me “when we go onstage it’s a war between us and the audience.” He never let go of that attitude. Our love and thoughts are with his sons Brandon and Miles and their mother Jane, his wife Rachel, and his immediate family.

UPDATE – Young è morto il 9 settembre all’età di 49 anni come viene confermato dalla polizia del Sussex. “His death is not being treated as suspicious”.
