Claude Nobs: Roger and Brian Tributes

Claude’s utter devotion to music of the highest caliber in every sphere was a true inspiration to us. Over many years we enjoyed his incredible hospitality and generosity of spirit. A man of impeccable taste. We considered him the Prince of Switzerland.

We mourn the sudden and tragic loss of Claude Nobs, the father of the Montreux Jazz Festival, and a long-standing dear friend. 

We salute his unparalleled contribution to Blues, Jazz and Rock culture in Europe, and will miss him greatly. 

Our deepest sympathies to his family and those near and dear to Claude.  

Brian May - Queen
