Not unexpected as he's been ill for some time, but sad to hear that former Uriah Heep and Ozzy Osbourne drummer Lee Kerslake has died.

Yeah he played on some Classic albums from both Uriah Heep and Ozzy. Always sad when a skilled musician dies.

Sad news. 73 is a more reasonable age to go I guess than when some artists have left us, but still not a great age. And prostrate cancer seems to take an increasing number of men, unfortunately.

I opened YouTube the other day and saw a video of Lee playing Crazy Train with some young dude on guitar. Lee was so fat that I said to the video, "Dude, for god's sake, lose some weight. This will kill you!" I then checked Wikipedia to see what he was doing these days and the entry read (...- September 19, 2020). Well, it was cancer not a heart attack. Funny thing, I didn't hear anything about his passing in any of the music groups on Facebook that I follow. Had it not been for that video, I'd have been surprised to find this notification here.
A story told that can't be real somehow must reflect the truth we feel.
