RIP: Eric Kitteringham

The former Taste bassist has passed away.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 08 May 2013

Hot Press were deeply saddened this afternoon to learn of the death of Eric Kitteringham at the age of 66.

A renowned bassist, he completed the rhythm section alongside Norman Damery in the first incarnation of Rory Gallagher's Taste.

A big presence in the Cork scene during the '60s, he began with Damery in The Axels, before going on to make history with Gallagher over the course of two years, during which time they played at home and in many of The Beatles' old Hamburg haunts.

Not only a fine musician, but known as an absolute gentleman to all who came across him, he was originally from Victoria Road and passed away in Marymount Hospice following an illness.
