Sean Taylor (1962 – 2021 )

It’s with deep sadness that we have to bring you news of the passing of our dear friend and founding Sample Sean ‘Badger’ Taylor. Some of you will be aware that Sean has had a few health problems in recent years but none of us were expecting what has unfurled over the last few weeks. Only a few short weeks ago, we were planning to get back in the rehearsal room where we know Sean was looking forward to getting back on stage with The Samples again later this year. We are totally gutted that he has been robbed of this opportunity.
We had the privilege of being able to spend a few final moments with Sean shortly before he passed, to say our final goodbyes, to shed a few emotional tears together but also to share some great laughs and to reminisce (we do love to re-tell the old stories).
Our long-time friend, our brother, our singer and frontman, our writer of great lyrics (still relevant today), his generosity really knew no bounds. We are already missing him badly and he will leave a massive gap behind him.
At this sad time, we’d like to extend our thoughts to Pete, Lauren, James, Guy, Louise and all of Sean’s family and friends. So many will miss him.
Love you brother. Gone but never forgotten.
Rest in Peace mate.
