Tony Bourge (born Antony James Bourge, 24 November 1948, Cardiff, Wales) was the Welsh original guitarist for the rock band, Budgie. He left the band in 1978. In 1982 he joined original Budgie drummer Ray Phillips, and formed Tredegar, with future members of Cloven Hoof singer Russ North and guitarist Andy Wood.
In 2013 Bourge returned to the music scene with a new album of songs called "Crank It Up" which is available to buy through ITunes. Artists such as Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains, Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, and Kim Thayil of Soundgarden list him as an influence.
