Legendary Y & T drummer Leonard Haze has died at the age of 61. Dave Meniketti has issued the following statement:

It is with shock and sadness that I type this. Leonard Haze, the legendary drummer, and a guy I spent decades with creating great music together, has passed away at 61. This, just a few days after his birthday. I woke up to this news a few minutes ago, as I’m in Germany, and immediately called his wife, Kelly. She confirmed that Leonard had passed away in his sleep, a few hours ago, sometime between noon and 7:30pm on Sunday, September 11.

Leonard has been struggling with COPD for years, but Kelly said that although his health had recently declined, they felt he had a few years left, so this is unexpected.

My deepest condolences to Leonard’s family and friends. His impact on the rock scene was well documented.

Rest in peace, my friend.
-Dave Meniketti
