  1. Definitely one of the greatest and most important drummers ever! He will be missed but thank God he was here.

  2. I was surprised to hear it… and sad for a coupla seconds… but what an amazing life… like, how much more exciting can it get when throwing out ground-breaking crazed music in one of the most creative eras in the history of humankind??!!

  3. A true legend is gone. I saw him perform once with Jimi at New York at the Cave they called it Amazing Drummer. He was a Jazz Cat That played Rock songs Along the Watch Tower, Fire, Purple Haze. Man, such a loss. RIP Brother; you and Jimi and Buddy Miles are Doin’ that Great Heaven Gig. RIP and God Bless you all.
