MIT EINEM SOLO ZUR LEGENDE: IRON-BUTTERFLY-DRUMMER BUSHY MIT 79 VERSTORBEN
- Sep 01, 2021
Already on Sunday Ron Bushy, drummer of Iron Butterfly, passed away at the age of 79. He had joined the U.S. formation, which was founded in the same year, at the end of 1966 and recorded all six studio albums until 1975. Iron Butterfly belonged to those bands that enriched psychedelic music more and more with Hard Rock and became pioneers of Heavy Metal. Iron Butterfly achieved legendary status with their second LP IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA from 1968, which contains the 17-minute title track. This work came to this time not least because of Bushy's extended drum solo. The drummer was a recurring part of line ups for live performances after the first split, before returning to Iron Butterfly in 1993 and participating in all activities until 2019.
