(Classic Rock) Bass player Ken Whaley, best known for being a member of Welsh rockers Man, has died at age 66 after a long illness. Whaley was a member of Man for two years, from 1974 to 1975, during which they recorded one of their most renowned albums, Rhinos, Winos And Lunatics.

The band's most successful record, it was produced by Roy Thomas Baker (Queen) and peaked at No.24 in the UK chart. Whaley also played on Man's Slow Motion full-length.

Whaley began his career in music in the late 1960s and helped found another revered Welsh band, Help Yourself, before leaving in 1972 to form pub-rockers Ducks Deluxe. He later rejoined Help Yourself, the band celebrating his return by calling their next album The Return Of Ken Whaley. more on this story
