KISS star and the co-founder of the band, Paul Stanley, has taken to his verified Twitter account today to mourn ‘Beck,’ ‘Bogert & Appice,’ ‘Vanilla Fudge,’ and ‘Cactus’ bassist, Tim Bogert, who passed away at the age of 76 yesterday.
Tim Bogert was born in New York City back in 1944 and has formed Vanilla Fudge with Mark Stein and Carmine Appice in 1965. Before deciding the separate ways, they’ve recorded five unique albums in just two years. After joining many bands as the main vocalist and the bassist, Bogert had joined ‘Hollywood Monsters’ in 2014 and unfortunately, he passed away from this world at the age of 77.
Paul Stanley shared the news of Tim’s passing away and showed his huge respect to Tim while recalling the first time he saw him on stage with Jimmy Page of The Yardbirds. While showing his huge respect, Paul called Tim ‘powerhouse’ and ‘mind-boggling.’
Here is what Paul Stanley said:
“RIP TIM BOGERT. I first saw Vanilla Fudge on a bill with the Yardbirds with Jimmy Page. Spectacular. I’d never heard 4 people play & sing as one.
Tim was mind-boggling on all fronts. Also when I saw Beck, Bogert&Appice. A powerhouse.”
