Rory Gallagher's Bandmate Rod de'Ath Dead at 64
In a statement on his Facebook page, drummer Ted Mckenna, who took over from de'Ath in Gallagher's band in 1978, says: "I got the sad news earlier today that Rod de'Ath had passed away.
"I only met him a couple of times when I worked with Rory, but was delighted to meet him again in 2012 when, for the first time, Rod, Brendan O'Neil and I, three of Rory's drummers, had all been together.
"Unfortunately, it was for another sad occasion when we gathered to pay our respects to Lou Martin. My thoughts are with his family, friends and those who knew him well." more on this story
