Iron Butterfly – In A Gadda Da Vida...Bassist Lee Dorman passed away in California.

Sad news this morning about the band.http://news.yahoo.com/iron-butterfly-bassist-lee-dorman-dies-age-70-005219358.html Bassist Lee Dorman passed away in California. He was only 70, which is much too young for someone to die. Iron Butterfly was best known for the psychedelic sound of their hithttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida In A Gadda Da Vida. The story goes that the song was supposed to be In The Garden of Eden but somehow between alcohol and drugs it didn’t quite come out that way. Haven’t we all been there at one point? It was the ’60s after all.

&

I remember dancing to that song in high school!

5. sometimes it seems just like yesterday

And at other times it seems so remote...like maybe it never happened at all and it was all just a dream.
Are we men dreaming we are Iron Butterflies or Iron Butterflies dreaming we are men?
I think I had a flashback...
May he rest in peace.

12. I was thinking the same thing...

from the OP though, why is 70 far too young to die? You do know he was in a rock band in the late 60's and early 70's? It is amazing he made it as long as he did.

7. Seems like only yesterday that

I was tripping to Iron Butterfly. The first concert I attended was Ten Years After, the second concert I attended was Iron Butterfly. Wow! Time flies.

RIP Lee. See you on the other side.

9. orange sunshine...

or some purple haze and Iron Butterfly took me places I haven't seen since. I religiously listen to their music, even now...it takes me back to a time that no one would understand if they hadn't experienced it. Thanks for the continued memories Lee. Your music will sound for eons.

10. Orange Sunshine, Purple Micro-dot, and Windowpane were some of those I did back in the 70's.

 

It was hard to separate the music from the intense electric current I was awash in. You became the music. It was inside you and wrapped you in a cocoon of color and sound and vibration. Good vibrations anyone? I think if I dropped acid at 58 it would probably kill me.

14. I'm also the 1954 model. Maybe it wouldn't kill me, but it could fuck me up (in a bad way).
