As a nurse practicing in geriatric centers, I have learned that everyone has a history. People of today who didn’t grow up with the band might have seen him, stricken, and completely ignored him. What a mistake. No one would have ever guessed that this fat man in the wheelchair was one of the greatest rock drummers who ever lived. Instead they would rather praise the virtues of thugs, and burn down cities. I have spent many hours listening to Lee, and would rate him as one of my five favorite rock drummers, along with Ringo, Bonzo, Rod Coombes, and Ian Pace. RIP Lee Kerslake.
