Priopćenje je prvo izdao bend na svojoj službenoj stranici. Prošle je godine Conwayu dijagnosticiran tumor na mozgu zbog kojeg se i podvrgnuo zahtjevnom operativnom postupku. Zbog dijagnoze i oporavka od operacije, Conway je propustio čitavu posljednju turneju benda no, na kraju, tumor je imao posljednju riječ.

CONWAY SAVAGE Our beloved Conway passed away on Sunday evening. A member of Bad Seeds for nearly thirty years, Conway was the anarchic thread that ran through the band’s live performances. He was much loved by everyone, band members and fans alike. Irascible, funny, terrifying, sentimental, warm-hearted, gentle, acerbic, honest, genuine – he was all of these things and quite literally “had the gift of a golden voice,” high and sweet and drenched in soul. On a drunken night, at four in the morning, in a hotel bar in Cologne, Conway sat at the piano and sang Streets of Laredo to us, in his sweet, melancholy style and stopped the world for a moment. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Goodbye Conway, there isn’t a dry eye in the house. Love, Nick and the Bad Seeds.

Savage se Caveu i Bad Seedsima pridružio 1990., za album “The Good Son”. Uz svoj rad s Caveom i bendom, redovito je objavljivao i samostalne albume kao i druge glazbene kolaboracije. Rođen je u Victoriji, u Australiji, a klavir je počeo svirati još kao tinejdžer. Tijekom 80-ih, Conway je odsvirao svoje kroz mnoge bendove, od country bendova poput Feral Dinosaursa do punk bluegrassera Dust on the Bible.

S Caveom i Bad Seedsima snimio je ukupno sedam ploča, uključujući i “Henry’s Dream” (1992), “Murder Ballads” (1996) i “Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus” (2004).
