On this date twelve years Boz Burrell died after a heart attack. The bassist and vocalist with King Crimson in 1971 and 1972 went on to enjoy a hugely successful post-Crim career with Bad Company. Boz died at his Spanish home in Puerto Banus, Marbella in the company of several friends. At the time his friend, guitarist and producer, Neil Warden recounted the circumstances surrounding Boz's passing. "Singer Tam White with friend Billy had been visiting Boz, and all three were ready to go out to a small party to play a few tunes with some friends." Neil went on to say “Tam was sitting in Boz’s apartment singing when Boz picked up a guitar and sat back in his seat, and slumped over and passed away. Efforts were made to revive him before the emergency services arrived but no luck.” Boz was only 60.
By way of a tribute in 2006 DGMLive offered a download of an alternative mix of Ladies Of The Road that had originally been prepared for the Frame By Frame boxed set but not used. If you didn't listen at the time it's still available to download.
