Farewell Ric Parnell

Ric Parnell left us at 12.50am May 1st

Last week we learned Ric Parnell was hospitalized, in serious condition. This week he was taken home for hospice care. Ric iwas not expected to be with us much longer.

Ric had a colorful career before he joined our circle in 2010. Despite his failing health, Ric managed two drum sessions for Donovan’s Brain this year. The last was mid February. We had made plans for another session in May. Sadly this will not come to pass.

Ric Parnell was the anchor to our recording activities since his arrival. Besides his work with Deniz Tek and Donovan’s Brain, he recorded tracks for Bobby Sutliff, Tom Stevens, and Kris Hughes.
Drumming was what he knew and did best
