2020 – A Strange Year For All

Author jurassictone    Category News     Tags

As with everything else in the country, Jurassic Rock “closed down” for 2020. Unable to gig, we, like all other bands, lost whatever momentum we had and will have to work hard to get gigs once the lockdown is lifted.

It is also the year in which we have to report with very heavy hearts that Ian McNorton, our bass player, died. His year had been even more harrowing than most as he had to nurse his wife through months of dementia, during which time she was confined to her bed and entirely reliant on Ian. During her illness, Ian had a mild stroke, which made his task even more difficult, but he managed with help from his sister-in-law and social services. Several months after her death, Ian had another stroke and was admitted to hospital where he contracted pneumonia and died. We are all very sorry to have lost you Ian, and will miss you as a friend and fellow musician.
