Deke Leonard starb bereits am 31.1.2017:
"The guitarist for Welsh progressive rock band Man, Deke Leonard, has died at the age of 72."
The South Wales Evening Post reports that Leonard had recently moved back to his hometown of Llanelli in Wales, where he lived with his “longtime partner Mary” and had been gigging with Son of Man, a group featuring an assortment of the band’s original members playing alongside their children.
“He played his last gigs with Son of Man, and he was playing great, and singing great, and feeling positive,” said George Jones, whose father, Micky, played guitar in the classic Man lineup. “He was saying he wanted to do something this year with Iceberg, and had been working on material. I feel like I have lost a parent. Deke was one of life’s gents.”
