Chris Dagley

One of the swingingest drummers around, Chris Dagley, died in a motorcycle accident returning from a gig at Ronnie's in the early hours.
A regular with Clare Teal I recall seeing him at Customs House, South Shields and Gala Theatre, Durham over the past couple of years.
A former NYJO percussionist he also enlivened many a session at Ronnie Scott's.
LondonJazz had the unfortunate task of breaking the news to a stunned Jazz World.
He was 38 years old.
Rest In Peace.
