Ron Bushy Death : legendary drummer of Iron Butterfly, has passed away.

We are sad to report that legendary drummer of Iron Butterfly, has passed away peacefully,” the band said in a statement on Sunday., according to the following statements posted on social media on August 28. 2021.

Entertainment Weekly @EW “Ron Bushy, our beloved legendary drummer of Iron Butterfly, has passed away peacefully,” the band said in a statement on Sunday.

Bushy was the only original member to appear on all six of the band’s albums, beginning with 1968’s Heavy through 1975’s Sun and Steel. He continued performing with various incarnations of the band for decades following their commercial peak.

While the group released their debut album to some commercial success — though every member besides Bushy and singer Doug Ingle would leave the group following its completion — it was the follow-up released the same year that earned them rock immortality. The title track from In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, whose title was based on Bushy’s mishearing of “In the Garden of Eden,” remains part of the rock canon; a bellwether of the genre’s more bombastic, psychedelic side of the late 1960s. Rolling Stone reported.

I’d like to know how that unique sound in the drum solo of In-A-Gada-Da-Vida was made. Somebody tried to tell me it went through a vacuum cleaner but that guy ain’t real bright.

I luckily got to meet Ron, and at least one daughter at the Merch table in Springdale, Arkansas. He was kind enough to autograph my album, and he showed his daughter her baby pic on the inside cover (I miss vinyl). My condolences to the family & the band….he will be missed.

So sorry to hear. RIP. I have been an Iron Butterfly fan since the early days. Ron’s drumming inspired me to take up the drums myself, I was never very good, but I had years of good times with them. Ron will be remembered!
