Moses Tay Bassist Naomi & The Boys Passed On

One of our 60s band boys Moses Tay (image with The Austrian Beatles) has passed on. Mr. Tay was the electric guitar bassist with Naomi And The Boys, one of the most popular instrumental groups in Singapore. The last time blogger met him was when Mr. Tay attended the July 23rd, 24th Concert at the Orchid Country Club in 2009.
This blog and all its readers send Mr. Tay's family their condolence.

I know who you are referring to. I just heard it on radio when Brian Richmond interviewed Vernon Cornelius. Very interesting interview actually.

Thank you Chun See. Many of us know about it but out of respect for the family, I shall post it on this blog after they have officially announced and published it in the dailies.

It was officially announced this morning in the Straits Times Press Singapore that Moses Tay has passed away.

Sorry to hear of his passing. But memories are forever.

Yes, Moses Tay will always be around as we listen to the music he plays. With more than 50 songs by The Boys and with most of them bass-accompanied by Moses Tay, he lives forever.

May you rest in peace Moses.

Hi Andy,

This is Cheryl, Moses' daughter. Thanks for your call yesterday & for this post on my dad. I really appreciate all the recognition he has received, in light of his passing.

With regards to your offer yesterday, I will definitely let you know when / if I want to write a post on my dad for your blog. I am still taking care of some matters & will need a bit of time to put something together, though I'm sure it won't take long.

Thanks once again.

Thank you Cheryl for writing, I appreciate that you respond to my call so quickly, especially at this moment of your family's bereavement.

Do feel free to write when you have the time and when you are ready.
Sincerely,
Andy
