Beggars Group boss Martin Mills has paid tribute to Pete Edwards, former tour manager and sound man for Bauhaus and others, who died last weekend.

In a post on his company’s website from earlier this week, Mills wrote: “We’ve just received the very sad news that our dear Pete Edwards passed away over the weekend, after a long illness. Pete Edwards, aka Plug The Roadie, originally came to us through, and worked with, The Lurkers, our very first band, and went on to tour the world as tour manager and sound man for Bauhaus and Love And Rockets, becoming legendary in the process”.

Mills went on: “After leaving the road he became buildings manager at Beggars, and was our rock until he fell ill. Pete was a fundamental part of the history and fabric of Beggars, and we and I will miss him greatly”.
