Can You Guess the Artist in This Yearbook Photo?
The Englishman pictured in this photo was the drummer of a legendary rock band. We know, that could describe a lot of the artists whose yearbook photos we’ve been featuring. But sadly, this kit minder’s life was cut short when he died on Sept. 25, 1980 at the age of 32. Drinking played a part in his passing.
As a skinsman, though, he was known for his speed, power, fast footwork and groove. Rolling Stone readers selected him as the best drummer of all time. He may have left this earthly planet 30 years ago, but he is still revered among rockers and rock fans, and rightfully so.
His son followed in his footsteps and is also a respected skins smasher in his own right.
