Lee Dorman, the bass guitarist for the legendary Iron Butterfly, passed away from natural causes on Friday, December 21st, in Laguna Niguel, California. Lee Dorman was 70 years old. Lee Dorman was born in 1942, in St. Louis, Missouri.

Lee Dorman joined Iron Butterfly as they recorded their (now iconic) In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida album back in 1968. In 1971, Lee Dorman and Iron Butterfly guitarist Larry Reinhardt founded the Metal-Jazz Fusion band Captain Beyond, along with Rod Evans of Deep Purple fame.

A tried and true pioneer of heavy music, Lee Dorman helped pave the way for the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal genres that we all cherish here at Metal Odyssey.

Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, friends, bandmates and fans of Lee Dorman. May Lee Dorman rest in peace.
