Terry Kath – Accidentally Shot Himself

Terry Kath
Facebook

Terry Kath was a founding member and lead guitarist of Chicago, and fans the world over have marveled at his playing on the classic ‘25 or 6 to 4‘ for decades. He was also a singer and multi-instrumentalist who played banjo, accordion, bass and drums. He sang lead on such Chicago tracks as ‘Colour My World‘ and ‘Make Me Smile.’

Kath also had a history of drug and alcohol problems. He died at a party at a crew member’s house on Jan. 23, 1978, after picking up an unloaded .38 revolver and putting it to his head, pulling the trigger. Still fooling around, Kath then did the same with a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol — which unfortunately was loaded. He died instantly.
