R.I.P. Warren Murchie


I woke up this morning to find some sad, unexpected news: my friend, contributor and former customer Warren has passed away.  I know he had been sick in hospital in Switzerland.  I have only seen him once since he moved there many years ago, but we kept in touch.  He read my site regularly and contributed a lovely piece on the late bassist Randy Coven.

Warren loved the bass.  Actually he just loved music, period.  He was passionate about it, it was his life.  That and his wife, whom I know he loved very much.  As the tributes to Warren pour in, I find myself at a loss for words.  I know Warren loved the bass playing of Chris Squire, so the best I can think to do is post this, for my friend Warren.  I can’t believe we’ll never talk about music together again.

Rest in peace, Warren, and thank you for all you’ve done.



      1. I have been thinking about him all day. I used to sit on his lap while he played bass (practiced) in my aunts band! He was a lot bigger then, and had long white curly hair…we all called him “wookie”… Good memories… he was always nice to me too!

        R.I.P. My friend.

      I’m so sad, have been since hearing this news. When I posted his RIP Randy Coven article I never imagined the next RIP I posted would be for Warren.

      He was really good to me. I will miss seeing those hits from Switzerland. I always liked seeing that, let me know he was there.
