Rockers We’ve Lost In 2013: Man Bassist Ken Whaley


Bassist Ken Whaley of the Welsh prog/psychedelic/blues band Man, died on May 17 after a long battle with cancer. He was 66. Whaley was only with Man for a short time, but during his stint, the band made one of their most commercially successful records, 1974s ‘Rhinos, Winos and Lunatics.’ Whaley was a fixture on the U.K. pub rock scene, as a founding member of Help Yourself and later forming the great Ducks Deluxe with Brinsley Schwarz and future Graham Parker and the Rumour guitarist Martin Belmont. Whaley also briefly toured with Hawkwind.

Next: Jeff Hanneman of Slayer
