Goldy McJohn, founding member of Steppenwolf, dead at 72
 
Quote:

Steppenwolf founding member Goldy McJohn, whose roaring organ sounds and big hair brought a powerful presence to the group behind the classic-rock staples Born to be Wild and Magic Carpet Ride, has died.

The Canadian keyboard player died on Tuesday of a heart attack, according to a post on his Facebook page. He was 72.

"He died at home in my arms, that's all I can say," McJohn's wife, Sonja, told The Canadian Press by phone from Seattle on Friday, adding they had been together for 30 years.
I really loved Steppenwolf. May He Rest In Peace.

Head out on the highway, Goldy. Rest in peace.

You don't know what we can find.

R.I.P., Mr. McJohn.
