Drummer Wallace dies at 60

Journeyman played with Dylan, Henley

Ian Wallace, a journeyman drummer who toured with Bob Dylan, Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt and recorded with Stevie Nicks, Ry Cooder and other music stars, has died. He was 60.

Wallace died last Thursday at UCLA Medical Center of complications from esophageal cancer, his wife Marjorie Pomeroy said Monday.

Born in Bury, England, Wallace began playing in rock bands in the 1960s and earned a reputation for his eclectic range.

Wallace went on to provide beats for prominent musicians in a variety of genres. They included Crosby, Stills & Nash, Stevie Nicks, Roy Orbison, Traveling Wilburys, Brian Eno, and Jackson Browne.

He also played with several jazz bands and founded the Crimson Jazz Trio.

Besides his wife, Wallace is survived by his mother, his father and two daughters.

Private memorial services were scheduled for March 11 in Los Angeles and on the weekend of March 17-18 in London.
