Famed bass player Marshall Lytle has died after losing his battle with lung cancer. He was 79.
The musician passed away at his home in Florida on Saturday morning (25May13).
Lytle is best known for his work with Bill Haley & His Comets in the 1950s, but he quit the line-up in 1955 following a salary dispute and went on to form The Jodimars with drummer DICk Richards and saxophone player Joey Ambrose.
In 1987, six years after the death of Haley, Lytle was invited to take part in a reunion of the original Comets line-up, and they went on to tour and record again before the musician decided to retire in 2009.
Lytle was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with his bandmates last year (12).
