hartley worked as a drummer for rory storm and the hurricanes, the artwoods and john mayall. he passed away on sunday after complications from surgery at the age of 67. here is the in memoriam note by john mayall:
I got the sad news (27Nov11) that Keef Hartley died of complications from surgery last Sunday. When I think back to all the adventures we had over the years, both on and off the road, it seems hardly possible that my friend of so many years will not be showing up to sit in with any of my bands in the future. His sense of fun and love of life will always remain in my thoughts as special memories. Boy did we have fun! So long my friend, I will miss you.
here is a track from his first album with the keef hartley band:

I started collecting records in 2009 and own around 1,900 vinyl records, mainly from the 1960s and early 70s. I am always eager to get the original first pressing of a record if it is possible and affordable. My special subject are 60s garage and freakbeat obscurities and my focus is mostly on 45s, but also LPs.
And besides records I really like cats :-)
Some of you might already have wondered about the title of this blog. I chose this name in honour of one of the greatest rock&rollers in the long row of those who helped to form rock music as we know it today, and who was tragically killed at the young age of 21 in a car crash. His most famous hit was, and will ever remain, the all too well known “Summertime Blues”. He was also resposible for hits like “Somethin Else” and “C’mon Everybody” and his work has been covered by numerous aritsts over the time. The tongue-in-cheek song Twenty Flight Rock
might not be as popular as his big hits, but being a huge Cochran fan I like it so much that it became the title or motto of my blog. I’m gonna raise a fuss and im gonna raise a holler!
