Roy de'Ath

Just one year ago tomorrow, we lost drummer Roy de'Ath. He was supposed to be dead in the late '80s after he was in a nasty car accident that left him with the loss of one eye and some brain damage. I crossed paths with de'Ath when he was playing with Rory Gallagher. The show was brilliant.

 
 

ROY DE'ATH
6/18/50 - 8/1/14

I picked this video of Roy when he was playing with Rory Gallagher and he has a drum solo at the 3:34 point and over-all it's a great segment from the 1974 Irish Tour documentary.
