Tragic passing of Ted McKenna

We are all deeply shocked to learn about the passing of drummer Ted McKenna on Saturday at just 68 years of age. During his lifetime he had played with The Alex Harvey Band, Rory Gallagher, Gary Moore, Greg Lake, Michael Shenker Group, Ian Gillan and in 2013 was with the Band of Friends when they won the Best Band vote in the European Blues Awards

In 2015 Ted was himself voted Best Musician and is seen here receiving his award from Bluesman Mike Francis at Linton Blues Festival UK. He was a massive influence on generations of followers and musicians alike and will be very sadly missed.
