Tom Edwards, the live guitarist and music director for Adam Ant passed away on 26 January while on tour. He was found unresponsive and taken to Kennedy Hospital in Cherry Hill, N.J. (USA) where he was pronounced dead at the age of 41, probably from suspected heart failure (an autopsy is pending).
Adam Ant, following the tragic event, was forced to postpone the upcoming shows in Philadelphia and New York. Tom (Tommo) was a respected musician having worked also with Fields Οf Τhe Nephilim, Rebelles, Edwyn Collins, Andrea Corrs, Arno Castens and Spiderbites. Both Adam Ant and Fields Of The Nephilim have posted the shocking news on their official Facebook page and official site accordingly.
It is shocking and sad that a young musician dies abruptly; I have attended 2 shows by the Nephilim and I can recall the blonde guitar player (one of two in the band) they had at that time…I will only share here the last sentence by the Nephilim : “Tommo we take our hats off to you and will miss you deeply but will never forget you. Forever Remain. RIP“.
