« We’re grieving the loss of our brother Bones Hillman, who has passed away at his home in Milwaukee today after a cancer battle. He was the bassist with the beautiful voice, the band member with the wicked sense of humour, and our brilliant musical comrade. Bones joined Midnight Oil way back in 1987 after stints in various Kiwi bands, most notably, The Swingers. He played and sang on every Midnight Oil recording since Blue Sky Mining and we did thousands of gigs together.We will deeply miss our dear friend and companion and we send our sincerest sympathies to Denise, who has been a tower of strength for him.Haere rā Bonesy from Jim, Martin, Peter & Rob. »
