Remembering Tommy Bolin

Tommy Bolin died at the young age of 25. He was on his "Private Eyes" tour. The night before he had opened for the legendary Jeff Beck and had also opened shows for Peter Frampton. The young man earned those spots by being the guitarist in Zephyr, Energy, James Gang, Deep Purple and more. He also put out a couple of solo albums. In the end his demons took him.Today we look back and celebrate this guitarist and his work.
