The drumming community lost a beloved friend on September 11 with the passing away of Marvin McQuitty Jr. According to drummerworld.com he battled a severe illness.
My memories of Marvin’s playing were mostly from the incredible Fred Hammond days (Pages of Life 1 & 2) but I also had the chance to here him fill in with Israel & New Breed after Chris Coleman accepted another opportunity.
After the show I had the opportunity of chatting with Marvin and he certainly was a humble, God-fearing man.
Our love and prayers go out to his family as they face the reality of losing a loved one.
Marvin, you will be missed!
