Cold Chisel’s drummer, Steve Prestwich, passed away on the afternoon of 16th January 2011. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour less than two weeks earlier, underwent an operation last Friday, and never regained consciousness.

Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Phil Small and Don Walker are shattered by the loss. All our thoughts are with Steve’s loved ones at this difficult time.

The Prestwich family have asked that in lieu of floral tributes a donation to the Brain Foundation would be most appreciated. Donations can be made by contacting 1300 886 660.
