Tommy Bolin Biographies

Tommy Bolin Biographies

Tommy Bolin died in 1976 at the age of 25. The death
certificate said "multiple drug intoxication". Like his peers,
Janice Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix,
he produced a lot of good and ground-breaking material
before leaving us all too soon.

"As a guitar player, he was
fast, yet brilliantly clean.
Usually some of these fast
guys are sloppy, but his hands
could move brilliantly, and
each note was pure. And he
showed tremendous emotion.
He could cry on that guitar."
~ Chuck Morris

Although history will best remember Tommy as Deep Purple's
replacement for Ritchie Blackmore in 1975, true fans are
aware of his many other gigs -- both solo and with other groups.
There is vast variety in what Tommy did, and if you haven't heard
it all yet... you are to be envied.... it's a fabulous musical journey!
