THE SWEET Gründungsmitglied und ex. Bassist Steve Priest ist im Alter von 72 Jahren gestorben. Sein Tod wurde vom Bandkollegen Andy Scott bestätigt. Infos zur Todesursache gibt es noch nicht.

In einer Erklärung auf der Facebook-Seite der Band schrieb Scott:  "Then there was one! I am in pieces right now. Steve Priest has passed away. His wife Maureen and I have kept in contact and though his health was failing I never envisaged this moment. Never. My thoughts are with his family.

"He was the best bass player I ever played with. The noise we made as a band was so powerful. From that moment in the summer of 1970 when set off on our Musical Odyssey the world opened up and the rollercoaster ride started! He eventually followed his heart and moved to the USA. First New York then LA.

"Rest in Peace brother. All my love."
