122David ByronDavid Garrick, better known by his stage name David Byron, was a British singer and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist with the rock band Uriah Heep in the early 1970s.

FOr those of you that don't know, he was the lead singer of the band Uriah Heep in the 1970s and released 10 albums with them. Such a sad death largely because it was barely reported in the music press when he died in 1985, considering everything he accomplished with Uriah Heep. Some people thought he was around even long after his death.
