"It is with the heaviest of hearts that I share with you that Lee Kerslake, my friend for 55 years and the best drummer I have ever played with, lost his battle with cancer at 03: 30 this morning. He died quietly, thank God, but he will be sorely missed.
I know that many of you have prayed that he would not suffer, and I thank you for that. Now that Lee has found peace, we should not leave in our thoughts and prayers his wife sue, who will need maximum support during this period"
