Colin Burgess, drummer for the band AC/DC, age 77.

To clarify, he was their original drummer from late 1973 to early 1974 and was never on any of their recordings. He would later go on to drum for other bands such as The Masters Apprentices and His Majesty. Rock in peace, Colin.

Gil de Ferran, driver from the CART, IRL (now Verizon IndyCar), and American Le Mans series, has passed away at age 56. He was the 2000 & 2001 CART Series champion as well as the 2003 Indy 500 winner
I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Toronto Indy when he was a driver (1999 and 2000), as well as when he was a non-driver (driver coach or Penske supporter) either 6 or 7 years ago. Amazing man. May he race in paradise  :cry: :cry:
