Default Jefferson Starship drummer Dies

Joey Covington, a drummer with rock group Jefferson Airplane, died following a car crash in Palm Springs, Calif. early on June 5, according to The Desert Sun. The ID was confirmed by the Riverside County Coroner's Office by KESQ-TV. Covington was 67.

According to the Sun, Covington crashed his Honda Civic into a retaining wall at a curve in the road, and flew into an elevated driveway. Stephen Wallace, a guest staying in a nearby hotel, tried to resuscitate Covington but the injured man died at the scene. Police did not believe drugs or alcohol were involved, but reported that he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Friend Keith McCormick said Covington had just performed on Saturday at a birthday concert for Marilyn Monroe's 87th birthday. He added that Covington's common-law wife (who went unnamed in the article) suspected a stroke or heart attack led to the car crash.
