R.I.P. Keef Hartley


 Keith “Keef” Hartley

8th April 1944 – 27th November 2011

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:
