DICK SIMS R.I.P. 1951-2011

Tulsa based keyboardist and long-time member of Eric Clapton's band has died at the age of 60 after battling cancer. Sims died on December 8, 2011. Sims formed the Tulsa County Band and, together with drummer Jamie Oldaker and bassist Carl Radle, helped develop what became known as "The Tulsa Sound". The threesome originally backed and collaborated with Clapton on his 1974 album 461 Ocean Boulevard and ended up staying for nine years. After a 10-year break from music, Sims released his only solo album, Within Arm's Reach, in 2008. Clapton dedicated his December 10 show in Tokyo to his late friend.

Il a aussi fait partie du Borneo Band qui accompagnait Bob Seger sur le magnifique BACK IN '72 et lors de quelques concerts vers 72-73 avant que Bob ne forme le Silver Bullet Band.
