Trevor Burton:

Original bassist and rhythm guitarist of Birmingham's pride: The Move. Left in '68 after the release of the "Blackberry Way" single.

Trevor spoke out on leaving The Move in an article in 'Q Magazine', in the "Where Are They Now" series from April 1992:
"I'd had enough. It was getting too commercial for me. I was more into the blues and jamming. I got fed up with being told what to do and how to look. I didn't miss the fame."

Did session work at Island Studios, contributed to Paul Kossoff's Back Street Crawler, ex- Spooky Tooth guitarist Luther Grosvenor's solo album and tracks with Gary Wright before moving back to Birmingham. Joined Raymond Froggatt Band in 1974, which disbanded after one single; subsequently joined The Steve Gibbons Band. Left in 1982. Now fronts the blues-based Trevor Burton Band, playing the Midlands pub circuit. "I'm happy playing music. It's what I've always done since I was 13."

Trevor played a blond Fender Precision bass with Steve Gibbons.
But from then on his role as a six-string guitar wielder obviously took over.

Trevor left the Birmingham scene for a while in Spring '98, acting out the role of guitarist with The Big Town Playboys. No recording as far as I know.
