Lee Dorman, bass guitarist for 1960s psychedelic rock band Iron Butterfly, died of natural causes in Laguna Niguel, Calif. He was 70.
A statement from the Orange County coroner’s office says Dorman was under the care of a physician when the 70-year-old was found dead in his car Friday at his home. Dorman may have been on his way to a doctor’s appointment when he died.
Iron Butterfly was formed and rose to prominence in the late 1960s. Its second album, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” sold more than 30 million copies, according to the band’s website. The title track’s distinctive notes have been featured in numerous films and TV shows including “The Simpsons,” ”That ’70s Show” and in the series finale of “Rescue Me.”
