(Classic Rock) Kelly Holland, who fronted southern rock band Cry Of Love for their 1993 debut album Brother, has died at the age of 52. He stayed with the North Carolina band for only the one album, but his vocal abilities took them close to the big time for a brief period, resulting in three hit singles: Peace Pipe, Bad Thing and Too Cold In The Winter.

Holland struggled with life on the road as Cry Of Love toured with Aerosmith and Robert Plant, and was eventually fired and replaced by Robert Mason, later of Warrant. Cry Of Love split in 1997, with guitarist Audley Freed going on to join the Black Crowes and bassist Robert Kearns going to Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Drummer Jason Patterson has paid tribute to the late vocalist, telling NewsObserver: "Through it all he was able to sing fantastically. Kelly was the greatest rock'n'roll singer I've ever known - but the boy had some demons too." more on this story
