Mark Pickstone

I’m absolutely gutted and stunned to tell you that a very dear friend of mine, Mark Pickstone, died last night (12th March 2022). We worked closely together on songs that would later be used in Schwarzeneggar and as you know he was the keyboard player in that band. Mark was a gentle and caring giant who I loved very much and I shall miss him greatly. I ask you all to raise a glass to him. My thoughts go to his wife and family.

See you later Mark.

Bob Butler

It’s with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that Bob Butler died on Monday 28th February 2022. As most of you know we worked together in Schwarzeneggar and The Last Supper, but more than a work mate he was a true friend, a bloody good bass player, a bloody good bloke and I shall bloody well miss him. I shall always think of him with that cheeky grin on his face as the pair of us would slope off for that sneaky beer. My arms reach out to Helga in this dreadful time. See you later Bob and remember – ‘straight on’.

Another Slice 30th January 2015

It can’t get anymore exciting and scary to play your first gig with a new band at the London Electric Ballroom supporting Sleaford Mods but that’s exactly what happened.

It is now 7 years ago that Pete Rawlinson became part of the Slice Family. As soon as we played the first notes on that stage I knew he was a keeper. Great bass player and lovely human being.

The following day we popped in at Dial House.
