So just recently , Lee Kerslake has been diagnosed of terminal prostate cancer and doctors estimate that he has 8 months left to live

Now we know who we gonna lose in 2019 for sure.

Thoughts?

That was pretty heartbreaking to read and I feel especially bad for only knowing him for his Ozzy work and one Uriah Heep album. I hope he's able to go out on his terms and accomplish what he can.

That was a sad read. Had no idea he had to deal with that sort of shit with mr. O$$y. I guess I'll be spinning a couple UH records today.

Sad to hear. His work with Bob Daisley on the first two Ozzy albums is incredible.

Read about this yesterday and it was painful.

If Ozzy and that cunt refuse to give him what he deserves even as a dying wish there'd be no words to express my utter disgust. What they did with the album masters was revolting enough; this would take it to a whole new level of unspeakable dickery.

On a more positive note, I'm very curious to hear Lee's album and hope he can have it as easy as possible, whatever happens.

Wow, that's a bad miss. It's already kinda backhanded enough to have people reporting you're dead when you're quite alive and well, but it feels a lot more tacky when the person in question actually is nearing their final moments alive and it becomes a game of "they're dead! wait hold on maybe not, oh actually I was wrong, they're indeed dead now".
