Darrell Anthony Sweet

It was ten years ago today that Nazareth drummer Darrell Anthony Sweet suffered a fatal heart attack in Indiana while on tour, after playing in the band since 1968 (that's 41 years at the same job, people)...which would probably break Cal Ripken's record.


You gotta love Nazareth's interpretation of this Joni Mitchell ballad - yes, I said ballad...

Rock on, Darrell!

You can see lots more pictures and learn more about Darrell Anthony Sweet and the 47 other musicians in my tribute book, .

My math could be fuzzy but that's 31 years, not 41.
