We are sad to report that George Frayne, better known as Commander Cody , who led the band Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, a group that combined elements of the rock counterculture with a love for roots music in the early 1970s, died Sunday at age 77, according to the following statements posted on social media.

His death was also confirmed on his official Facebook page.

Early this morning
As I lay my head upon his shoulder
George’s soul took to flight
I am heartbroken and weary
And I know your hearts break too
Thank you so much for all the love you gave
And the stories you shared
We are working on 2 big gatherings
On both the east and west coast
(The Island and the Bay Area)
To celebrate the Old Commander’s phenomenal life
And to benefit musicians in need.

George Frayne, better known as Commander Cody, has died per a post on his friend Bill Kirchen’s page. I’m heartbroken. One of the best nights of my life came years ago when I went to see Kirchen at The Birchmere and the Commander came out and played the second set with him.

My heart is sad I knew George from Oceanside and I was friends with his brother Chris. George and I were acquainted at Robert Moses in the ’60s as lifeguards.
