Camel's Guy LeBlanc Dead At 54

(Classic Rock) Camel keyboardist Guy LeBlanc has died after a battle with cancer. The 54-year-old was forced to sit out the band's tour dates last year after being diagnosed with kidney cancer which later spread to his bones.

Camel have issued a statement in which they confirm LeBlanc died on Monday (April 27). They say: "It is with a hugely heavy heart that we announce the gentle passing of our friend and keyboard player, Guy LeBlanc.

"We are unable to adequately express the sorrow we are experiencing at this time. Our hearts are with his family, Shirley, Natasha and Kayleigh LeBlanc."

LeBlanc was put on radiation treatment after his diagnosis and his 2014 touring duties were taken up by Dutch musician Ton Scherpenzeel. Read more here.
