This is strange for me.
I was convinced he had died a good few years back. I feel sure I had read about it!

Unconfirmed reports that Clydie King has passed away. She was a key part of Bob Dylan's band during the gospel years, worked extensively as a backing singer with Ray Charles, sung with Leonard Cohen and many others.

Not only Bob's backing vocalist, but also possibly his second wife and the mother of two of his children:

"Possibly" being the key word. This does not ever seem to have been substantiated even by Clydie herself, though I have no doubt that Bob has been and enthusiastic swordsman over the years.

Haha.  That term is always equal parts amusing and horrible.  It's very 70s, isn't it?  They used to call George Harrison that too.

Iím just reading tributes to Ted McKenna, who I knew best as Rory Gallagherís drummer, and also an alumnus of SAHB and MSG. By all accounts a tremendous chap and an enthusiastic mentor.

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

This is shocking...he played at the Robin only three weeks ago at a tribute to Cozy Powell from whom he took over drum duties in MSG.
I'm currently reading a SAHB biography and had just got to the bit where Tear Gas formed, and Ted was talking about when he changed his name from Eddie and Al added the Z.
Sad to think that when he speaks in the book from now on he is no longer with us. R.I.P  Cry

I haven't seen an actual report yet of Ted dying, has anyone else seen it verified?
We all know how rumours spread.
