“Tom was and always will be a brother to myself and my bandmates. He made such an impact on us from the start, and his love for music and his stride for success outmatched any of us,” Max added. “[Tom] was the only member of The Wanted to have a punch-up with every member of The Wanted.”
Siva then jokingly said, “He did lose every fight, by the way.” He continued, “It is so wonderful to see all the support for Tom… There’s one thing we can all agree on – Tom Parker was an absolute hero.”
Concluding the message, Max shared, “He has left us far too early and we will miss him so much.” He went on saying, “The heartbreak shared here today is a credit to the love Tom shared. The people outside, the people all around the world, is a credit to him. Rest easy, mate.”
