Pat Torpey (December 13, 1953 – February 7, 2018) was a classy drummer..nothin' else to add.

Torpey was well known as member of Mr.Big but he also played wirh several musicans.

Among us we remind Robert Plant, Montrose, Richie Kotzen, Impellitteri and Ted Nugent. While on tour with the Knack, Torpey was noticed by Billy Sheehan and Paul Gilbert, who were looking for a drummer for a new super project.

He announced on July 25, 2014, that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and would be unable to perform all of his normal drumming on the band's 2014–15 "...The Stories We Could Tell" Tour. Torpey acted as a "drum producer" on Mr. Big's latest album, "Defying Gravity", and played percussions live. Torpey died at the age of 64 on February 7, 2018. (Public Pics taken from Fb)
