Australian guitarist, Phil Emmanuel, has sadly passed away.
According to reports, the musician was staying with his brother, Darcy Emmanuel, in Parkes, a small town in NSW, when he died suddenly after suffering an asthma attack. He was 65.
“On behalf of the family, it is with great sadness that I announce the passing of our much-loved brother, Philip Ernest Emmanuel,” Darcy said in a statement.
“We are all devastated,” Darcy said. “This comes on top of the loss of our sister Virginia Grace on April 14, aged 69. Philip and Virginia were virtually joined at the hip and I don’t think either one would have been able to live without the other.”
Phil was also the brother of Tommy Emmanuel, 62.
Tributes flow for the aussie legend.
Our thoughts are with his loved ones.
