Lee Kerslake was the drummer for Uriah Heep from 1972 to 1979. Prior to that, he'd played with a band called Gods, releasing three albums with them. He also found the time, while still in Heep, to play on David Byron's and Ken Hensley's solo albums, among other efforts. In fact, in 1976, he recorded a final album with Gods. He eventually rejoined Heep, but not before recording with both Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath. Lee Kerslake died on September 19, 2020 after a long battle with cancer; he was 73 years old.
