Rob 'Throb' Young, RIP

With grief read this morning the tragic news of Rob 'Throb' Young's death. The former Primal Scream guitarist was the original guitar hero in a band I grew up with and still has a special place in my heart. Rob was present in every zenithal Scream moment, especially on 'Screamadelica' and 'Give Out But Don't Give Up', both personal favorites of yours truly. A proper rock & roller indeed. We all gonna miss those licks and riffs...

  1. Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes of Primal Scream issued a statement:

    "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 I’m 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.
