Cold Chisel drummer Steve Prestwich has died at the age of 56, less than two weeks after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The former Little River Band musician underwent surgery on Friday but never regained consciousness, Cold Chisel announced on the band’s website today. He died yesterday afternoon.
“Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Phil Small and Don Walker are shattered by the loss,” the website said.
“All our thoughts are with Steve’s loved ones at this difficult time.”
Cold Chisel formed in Adelaide in 1973, boasted a legendary live show and brought out their breakthrough album, Breakfast At Sweethearts, in 1979.
