    TOM EDWARDS, GUITARIST AND MUSICAL DIRECTOR FOR ADAM ANT, PASSES AWAY
    (CHERRY HILL, NJ) January 26, 2017 … Tom Edwards, 41, guitarist and MD for Adam Ant, passed away yesterday from suspected heart failure at Kennedy Hospital in Cherry Hill, NJ.
    Tom was on tour with the band as part of the North American Kings of the Wild Frontier tour that began two nights ago in Washington DC. He was found unresponsive then rushed to the hospital where he passed away yesterday in the late afternoon.
    An autopsy is pending. No further details are known at this time.
    Tom was an esteemed guitarist throughout his career and had played with Roddy Frame, Fields of the Nephilim, Rebelles, Edwyn Collins, Andrea Corrs, Arno Castens and Spiderbites.
    “On behalf of Adam and his band, we thank all of you for your best wishes and support during this most difficult time, Tom shared his musical gifts with the world and his spirit will live on forever.”
    In order to pay respects to their honoured bandmate, Adam and his band have postponed their upcoming concerts at The Keswick Theatre in Philadelphia (January 26) and Webster Hall in New York City (January 27), but will resume the tour at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto (January 29).

    I'm speechless, news i never expected to read. Not about someone so young. The guy was great, so kind to fans and what a guitarist. Really was one of the key factors that made Adam's comeback what it eventually became, i hope to god he gets the recognition he deserves for leading Adams live shows, organizing the band... this is incredibly sad, my thoughts go out to everyone close to him.

    The amount of posts and messages all over the net are testament to how much he was liked.
    It's a sad day indeed.

    I'm still in a state of shock.  It was less than 48 hours ago that I saw him in Boston. angelak, kburke and I were standing right in front of him doing what he does best. Hard to reconcile that we saw his last performance. 

    my sympathies go out to his family, friends and the band. What a tragic loss at such a young age.
