Dave Ball passed away

Dave BallAnother friend has just passed away, one day after his 65th birthday… Dave Ball was a great guitarist, mostly known for his work on PROCOL HARUM’s live album with an orchestra and his part in BEDLAM; he also was a top-notch illustrator and a writer; he was a storyteller and a funny man. And he was a great person to engage in a conversation with. Dave’s battle with cancer is well-documented, as he wanted to raise awareness for the importance of catching symptoms as early as possible. Sadly, Ball’s illness returned and, the last time we spoke, Dave said he had to move back from England to Australia where climate was better for his therapy and where his bassist brother Denny cared for him. He also wanted to add some bits to our fairly recent interview, which is going to be a tribute to the great artist. A soldier to the end, R.I.P., Dave, you’ll be sorely missed.
