Percussionist Who Played On BRUCE DICKINSON’s Balls To Picasso Passes

July 4th, 2010

Los Angeles based Latin hard rockers TRIBE OF GYPSIES, featuring guitarist/producer Roy Z (HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON, JUDAS PRIEST), have issued the following update:

“To all the Tribe fans out, especially those of you who were with us in the early days – it is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that our original congalero, Doug Van Booven, passed away last night. Dougie played on the first Tribe Of Gypsies album and the Nothing Lasts Forever EP (as well as percussion on Bruce Dickinson’s 1994 solo album Balls To Picasso) and his passion and spirit was a big part of those records. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Dougie’s family and friends and all those who knew him. Rest in peace, brother.”
