Jefferson Airplane drummer killed in a car crash
    #673710 - 06/06/13 03:15 PM (4 years, 10 months ago)


Jefferson Airplane drummer Joey Covington died in a car crash in Palm Springs, Calif., this week. He was 67.

According to local newspaper the Desert Sun, Covington, who had not been wearing a seat belt, crashed his car into a retaining wall at a curve in the road on Tuesday. The impact reportedly propelled his Honda Civic onto an elevated driveway "several feet above the crash site."

A guest at a nearby hotel attempted to resuscitate Covington, but the musician died at the scene, the paper notes.

Covington, who played with Jefferson Airplane from 1970-72, was a self-taught drummer, Rolling Stone reports. Recently described as a "very kind, considerate [and] jovial" person by his friend -- and renowned drummer -- Alvin Taylor, Covington was also one of the founding members of the band Hot Tuna and a member of Jefferson Airplane successor Jefferson Starship.

On Wednesday, Jefferson Starship posted “Rest in peace, Joey,” on its Facebook page.

Ohh wow ... this is horrible... Jefferson Airplane is by far one of my favorite artists, I'm going to burn one in Joey Covington's honor, while listening some live albums with great drum solos... This is a huge loss for music world.

Pour un instant, j'ai respiré très fort
Ça m'a permis de visiter mon corps
Des inconnus vivent en roi chez moi
Moi qui avait accepté leurs lois
J'ai perdu mon temps à gagner du temps
J'ai besoin de me trouver une histoire à me conter
Pour instant j'ai oublié mon nom
Harmonium - Pour un instant
