    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Attention spinal tap fans

    Drummers who died in gardening accidents

    Uncanny, no?

Mr Richard Shrimpton also appears on the drums in later guises of the band.

    I wish I held the publishing rights. From the article:

    Supposedly a car accident, but I'm sure gardening was involved somehow.

    if you thought he was dangerous in the dining room, ya shoulda seen him in a f-1 car. frightening! a web search shows nuthin so youll have to trust me. he bought a ride, with arrows if i remember it right, back in the early 80's. it got him a purty car with the bands name painted all over thing. it was a disaster filled with scary moments for him and anyone around him. im not sure but i think he stepped out early after ruinin another drivers suit a few races into the season. maybe it was when he spun and re entered the track goin the opposite way right into traffic almost runnin over a corner worker tellin him to stop and wait.

    other than that, sorry for the bad news.

    nevermind. it was '81. the team was called ats and it was a diff drummer. "In 1981, ABBA sponsored the ATS Formula One racing team, for whom Slim Borgudd, a former drummer who appeared on some ABBA recordings, was a driver." in 15 races, he showed up for 12, qualified for 7, crashed out of 4 and finished no higher than 6th when everyone else dropped out.
    No, I'm NOT back!
