Dear friend and employee Dennis St. John passed away on June 5th. Born in 1941, Dennis played drums for Neil Diamond from 1971-1981. If you’ve ever heard "Let Your Love Flow" or "Spooky" or "Spiders & Snakes" or Linda Ronstadt’s "Desperado" or Neil Diamond’s "Forever In Blue Jeans" or "America", then you’ve heard just a small sampling of the hundreds of recordings featuring his playing.
When hearing of Dennis' passing, Neil Diamond tweeted "Lost my old friend Dennis St. John. His drumming graces my recordings from Hot August Night to The Jazz Singer - I'll miss him big time."
He was a great guy and we will all miss him big time.
