Joey Covington, former drummer of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, was killed in a car crash in Palm Springs, Tuesday. He was 67.
The Airplane's third drummer (after Skip Spence and Spencer Dryden), Covington replaced Dryden after the Airplane's evolution into a long jam type group was too physically taxing for Dryden.Covington wrote and sang the band's tune "Pretty As You Feel" in 1971. He co-founded Hot Tuna two years earlier with Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen as a bluesy side project that the latter two continue with to this day.
