The members of Cold Chisel, Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Don Walker and Phil Small have issued a statement to say they are shattered by the news of the death of their drummer Steve Prestwich.

Steve was diagnosed with a brain tumour two weeks ago and had an operation on Friday. He did not survive.

In a statement at the Cold Chisel website, the band posted the following:

"R.I.P. Steve.

Cold Chisel's drummer, Steve Prestwich, passed away Sunday afternoon.  He was diagnosed with a brain tumour less than two weeks ago, underwent an operation last Friday, and never regained consciousness.

Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Phil Small and Don Walker are shattered by the loss.  All our thoughts are with Steve's loved ones at this difficult time."

Steve Prestwich was 56. He was a founding member of Cold Chisel and also a member of Little River Band.
