Trevor started playing in the mid 1960’s with Blacksies Babies and sometimes found himself playing with two or three different bands in any one week, things were very busy then! After a time playing with Chain he joined Blackfeather, then with Lobby Loyde and formed the Coloured Balls which was a great challenge and experience. The Coloured balls were a high-energy live band of the early seventies and produced some unique recordings.
Trevor has always searched for that elusive combination, where all the elements are right so the music can only be great. After the Coloured Balls, there were gigs with many bands, Full Boar, Buster Brown, Cold Chisel, Clawed Rains, Intruders, One Night Stand, Fingerprint and many more. Most recently Trevor played with Lobby and the Coloured Balls, for the ‘Long Way To The Top Tour’ plus a few special gigs before Lobby’s passing.
Trevor is still playing around with anyone astute enough to ask him and is looking forward to some genuine work for the ‘Forever Young’ band. It is pretty simple: “You can’t build a band without consistent work!”. Trevor always has and always will play for the love of the music and those he plays it with.
The Forever Young Band current line-up is, Drummer/Vocals Trevor Young ( Coloured Balls,etc ) Guitarist/Vocals James Southwell ( James Southwell Band/Angry Anderson/Stevie Wright ), Guitarist Maurice McGovern and Bass Trevor Crump!
