Australian post punk legend and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ member Conway Savage has passed away aged 58.

“A member of Bad Seeds for nearly thirty years, Conway was the anarchic thread that ran through the band’s live performances,” the statement reads.

“He was much loved by everyone, band members and fans alike.

“Irascible, funny, terrifying, sentimental, warm-hearted, gentle, acerbic, honest, genuine - he was all of these things and quite literally ‘had the gift of a golden voice,’ high and sweet and drenched in soul.”

The beloved pianist and keyboard player underwent surgery for a brain tumour last year.
