A statement from the family of Beatles' label Apple Records artist Jackie Lomax, whose death was reported Sept. 16, was received by the Beatles Shop in Liverpool and published by the British Beatles Fan Club, which has kindly allowed us to reprint it here:
Here's the statement:
"Official Statement from Jackie Lomax's Family
Jackie Lomax, recording artist, songwriter, performer, died yesterday at the family home after a brief illness. He died peacefully in his sleep with his family around him.
Jackie was born in Merseyside and was an original member of The Undertakers and a recording artist at Apple Studios.
His career spanned fifty years and he will be sorely missed."
May Pang also issued a statement on Facebook saying, "How sad to learn that ex-Apple recording artist Jackie Lomax had passed away. I remembered hanging with him and Badfinger as they were getting ready to do their respective tours in the US in 1970."
Apple Records released a single, "Sour Milk Sea," written and produced by George Harrison, and an album, "Is This What You Want?" Lomax later migrated to Warner Bros. Records. Harrison's demo of "Sour Milk Sea" was bootlegged extensively.
