Toto's Fergie Frederiksen Dead at 62

(Classic Rock) Legendary AOR singer and former Toto frontman Dennis Hardy 'Fergie' Frederiksen has died at age 62 after finally succumbing to inoperable liver cancer.

Frederiksen, who was born on May 15, 1951 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, fronted Toto for their 1984 album Isolation, taking over from Bobby Kimball and singing on the bulk of the album's 10 tracks. He also shared vocal duties with keysman David Paich on the hit single Stranger In Town.

Frederiksen left Toto shortly afterward but later rejoined them for selected dates on their 2007 tour. More recently, he and Kimball staged some performances together, despite Frederiken's condition worsening after contracting Hepatitis C. more on this story
