Kenny headed the band at Gord's company's Christmas parties last year and the year before. I found him to be enthusiastic and entertaining.
He had a CD release party Friday night and Liz had invited me (I hooked up with Gord instead). She went and had a fabulous time.
Unfortunately, Kenny was found dead yesterday morning in his apartment/studio.
It's sad ... quoting from today's Toronto Star:
Former Platinum Blonde drummer Chris Steffler, who helped recruit MacLean into the band in 1985, said his old friend was on prescription anti-anxiety medication but was otherwise healthy.
"He was in tip-top shape. He could bench-press 200 pounds," Steffler said last night in an interview, adding he still often played with his old friend who was talking to him about getting Platinum Blonde back together for a show and maybe more.
"He had everything to live for," Steffler said, calling MacLean's final show "electrifying."
