Joey Covington, drummer with Jefferson Airplane, died following a car crash in Palm Springs, Calif.
The deadly accident occurred early on June 5, according to The Desert Sun.
The ID was confirmed by the Riverside County Coroner’s Office by KESQ-TV. Covington was 67.
According to the Sun, Covington crashed his Honda Civic into a retaining wall at a curve in the road, and flew into an elevated driveway. Stephen Wallace, a guest staying in a nearby hotel, tried to resuscitate Covington but the injured man died at the scene. Police did not believe drugs or alcohol were involved, but reported that he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Friend Keith McCormick said Covington had just performed on Saturday at a birthday concert for Marilyn Monroe’s 87th birthday. He added that Covington’s common-law wife (who went unnamed in the article) suspected a stroke or heart attack led to the car crash. Source.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
