Judas Priest - Former Drummer Dave Holland Passes Away


Former Judas Priest and Trapeze drummer Dave Holland has reportedly passed away at age 69. The Spanish newspaper El Progreso reports the musician died on January 16th at Hospital Universitario Lucus Augusti in Lugo, Spain and while the cause of his death has not been revealed, his body has already been cremated, according to the newspaper.

Dave Holland was well known for being the second longest standing drummer in Judas Priest from 1979 until 1989, and playing in British Steel (1980), Screaming For Vengeance (1982) and Defenders Of The Faith (1984). In 2004, he was found guilty of attempted rape of a teenage boy. The drummer was sentenced to 8 years in prison in January 2004 of trying to rape the 17-year-old in his cottage in Northamptonshire, England, while giving him drumming lessons. He always claimed his innocence until his death.

Holland had reportedly been residing in A Fonsagrada, a town and municipality in the province of Lugo in northwest Spain.

Terrible human being. Vile specimen. And nowhere near as good a drummer as the vastly superior Les Binks and even Scott Travis. This is one artist I won't say r.i.p. to.

What is the difference between the man who fools you from the pulpit, and the other man who fools you from the platform?
Both of them seek to obtain power over you - To rule your mind, control your property interests or labor power.

I was waiting for a comment like that. There was a reason why he was cut from Iommi's 1992 DEP Sessions album.

Indeed.
Btw it wasn't just rape of a minor, it was even rape of a mentally challenged minor.
