Toronto native Eddie Harsch, a former keyboardist with the Black Crowes, has died.
He was 59 years old.
Eddie played in the height of the Atlanta Bands’ success from 1991 through 2006 including the bands only #1 Album, 1992’s The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion , 1994’s Amorica (which hit No. 11) and 1996’s Three Snakes and One Charm (which reached No. 15).
Recently he has been playing in a band called “Bulldog,” and had also manned the keys in Rich Robinson’s “Magpies,” which also includes other former Crowes Marc Ford and Sven Pipien.
Rich Robinson said “It is with the saddest of hearts that we bid farewell to our dear friend Eddie Harsch. Eddie was a brilliant musician, with a beautiful heart. We should remember Eddie for his music, his great sense of humor and his positive outlook on life.”
No cause of death was given.
