Primal Scream Guitarist Robert 'Throb' Young Dies, Aged 49

Primal Scream founding member and former guitarist, Robert "Throb" Young has died, the news has been confirmed by the bands publicist.

Young was an early member of the band, having met frontman Bobby Gillespie at school in Glasgow in the Eighties. He was initially Primal Scream’s bassist, and played bass on the band’s debut album Sonic Flower Groove, released in 1987. From their self-titled second album onwards he played guitar, featuring on famous tracks including Loaded, Rocks, and Country Girl.

A statement from Bobby Gillespie, Andrew Innes and Primal Scream then followed which reads: "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."

Former Oasis members Liam Gallagher and Paul Arthurs (Bonehead) both paid tribute to Young on Twitter. "RIP Robert Young AKA 'Throb'. Live Forever LG x" wrote Gallagher, with Bonehead stating: "RIP Throb. A true Rock n Roller".

RIP Robert "Throb" Young.
