Bill Stair R.I.P

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Message from Robin Key: My old band mate Bill Stair from the Art Objects/ Blue Aeroplanes has passed away, he was a genius bass player with a unique style. He moved from Bristol to live for a long time in New York where he played with numerous bands/artists including the Nervous Kind, Nyack and David Bowie. For the last few years Bill and Doreen lived in Mexico. Rest in peace Bill and Doreen Stair.
