R.I.P. Tom Leighton
Like many I was shocked to read the announcement across Social Media as they announced the passing of Tom.
It is with the heaviest of hearts we are writing this post to you, this is a post that we never ever thought we would have to write. The man who was the heart and soul of Wolf Jaw, our brother and friend has been called up for the great gig in the sky!! We will miss you brother!!
Here is a statement from his wife, Heather.
“As many of you may know, Tom was talented, humble to the core, thoughtful and an all round rad guy. To me though, he was my best friend, my soulmate, the father of my children and my husband. He was everything and more to me, Milo and Bodhi. I have no idea what life will look like now, without him and I’m currently struggling to even comprehend it. Thank you for all your kind messages, love sent and thoughts. I love you forever Tom, my king Mingo ”
Today as Bluesdoodles Remembers Tom Leighton frontman extraordinaire of Wolfjaw / Bad Flowers. we have gathered together a selection of reviews, conversations and the joy his music gave to so many.
Bad Flowers Firing a Bouquet With Starting Gun
When I review I have four simple rules of life.
Rule ONE: Play the music loud YES
Rule TWO: Listen To new Bands YES
Rule THREE: Celebrate the gems from artist that are unknown to you YES
Rule FOUR: Never give a debut album 10…. Hey Ho! Rules are made to be broken and so early in 2018, I have broken my own rules! Still 3 out of four is pretty good. Which one did I break? Well, Starting Gun is a celebratory stupendous TEN.
