In Memory of Lee Kerslake

Lee Kerslake was an English musician, best known as the longtime drummer and backing vocalist for the rock band Uriah Heep and for his work with Ozzy Osbourne in the early 1980s. Lee was born in Winton, near Bournemouth, Dorset in 1947 and started playing drums when he was 11 years old. His first professional gig was with ‘The Gods’ in 1969 and went on to record two albums with the band. He later played with Toe Fat and National Head Band before linking up with Uriah Heep in November 1971 with whom he made 17 albums.

Lee loved animals and wanted to visit Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary as he had a particular fondness for donkeys. Sadly, Lee passed away before this could happen. He is survived by his wife Sue and his family has generously asked that donations be made in lieu of flowers.
