R.I.P Drum Legend TED McKENNA

Scottish musician Ted Mckenna, who played with The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and The Michael Shenker Group, was said to have been going in for a routine operation but died as a result of complications which lead to him haemorrhaging blood.
A close friend of the 68-year-old confirmed the news on social media and paid tribute to the drummer who was originally from Lennoxtown, East Dunbartonshire.
In an emotional post Gerry McAvoy wrote: "I'm lost for words creating this post. I lost my friend and comrade this morning. After what should have been a routine operation, there were complications, meaning Ted started haemorrhaging blood.”
"Sadly the surgeons could not stop the bleeding. I spoke with Ted on Thursday, wished him good luck and told him we will speak on Saturday. I'm devastated. Ted was one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. A brilliant musician. He was a big man with a big heart, and he has left us all with a big hole in our lives.”
"RIP Ted from myself, Marcel, Davy and all those musicains who had the pleasure of playing with one of the finest drummers of all time."
