Eddie Hoh, American rock drummer, Died at 71


Eddie Hoh, nicknamed “Fast” Eddie Hoh, was born on October 16, 1944, and died on November 7, 2015.

He was an American rock drummer who was active in the 1960s.

Although primarily a studio session and touring drummer, Hoh exhibited a degree of originality and showmanship that set him apart and several of his contributions have been singled out for acknowledgment by music critics.

Often uncredited and unknown to audiences, he played the drums on several well-known rock songs and albums, including those by Donovan and the Monkees.

Eddie also performed at the seminal 1967 Monterey Pop Festival as a member of the Mamas and the Papas touring band.

In 1968, Eddie participated in the recording of Super Session, the highly successful 1968 Mike Bloomfield/Al Kooper/Stephen Stills collaboration album.

However, his flurry of activity came to an end in the early 1970s and has since remained out of the public eye.

Eddie passed away at age 71 in November 2015.
