Yup, Lee was a powerhouse. Saw him in Heep a few times. He'd been in poor health for a while, sadly. What a monster drummer.

He'd been sick for quite some time... last December he remarked that 5 years previously, the doctors had given him 4 years to live, and added, "...and so that gives you an idea."

However, in the same interview of last December, LK said that he'd been suffering from prostate cancer, but that it had metastasized and he'd developed a case of bone cancer that was likely to do him in. He said that the doctors gave him 8 months to live.

Lee made it for 10

He was great with Blizzard of Oz, but I still remember when he debuted with Uriah Heep... he just kind of *exploded* onto the scene and into the forefront of everyone's consciousness.

RIP

This just in: SHARON!!! just replaced his body with that of Mike Bordin.


.Admitting that she is a "mean bitch," Sharon said the tracks were re-recorded with new players "just to teach [Bob] a lesson.

Now that’s a big FU to the fans like me who loved those albums.

God’s speed Lee.


BTW Demons and Wizards is a fantastic album.
