Leonard Haze

(Classic Rock) Original Y&T drummer Leonard Haze has died at the age of 61. Haze passed away at his home in Hayward, California, after a battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Y&T frontman Dave Meniketti confirmed the news, saying: "It is with shock and sadness that I type this. Leonard Haze, the legendary drummer, and a guy I spent decades with creating great music together, has passed away at 61.

"This, just a few days after his birthday. I just woke up to this news, as I'm in Germany, and immediately called his wife, Kelly. She confirmed that Leonard had passed away in his sleep sometime between noon and 7.30pm on Sunday, September 11.

"Leonard has been struggling with COPD for years, but Kelly said that although his health had recently declined, they felt he had a few years left, so this is unexpected." Read more here.
