Queen's Brian May Leads Cozy Powell Memorial Plaque Event

(Classic Rock) A plaque has been unveiled in honor of drummer Cozy Powell in Cirencester, UK. Around 500 people attended the ceremony at the town's Corn Hall, including Tony Iommi, Brian May, Suzi Quatro, Neil Murray and Bernie Marsden.

Powell died in a car crash in 1998 aged 50 - ending a career which included stints with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Jeff Beck, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy and more.

Queen guitarist May tells the BBC: "He was one of the world's most exciting drummers ever. Cozy really helped to define the whole genre of rock drumming as we know it today. He's the heavy drummer template." Read more here.
