Ex-Y&T Drummer Leonard Haze...Our Best Of
9/30/2016 12:53:28 PM by Frank Hill





In 1974, Leonard Haze was a founding member of the hard rock band known as Y&T (formerly Yesterday & Today). Many rock connoisseurs consider the group's early 80s albums--"Earthshaker", "Black Tiger" and "Mean Steak", as groundbreaking triumphs of US hard rock. Lenny also played drums for successful acts like Ronnie Montrose and Ian Gillan (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath).

Lenny passed away September 11, 2016 at age 61 after battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) for several years. Maximum Metal was fortunate enough to have a personal friendship with Lenny over the past few years. We had intended to create a series of posts with his stories and experiences, but with his passing we are presenting the best of them in one full tribute column.

Highlights include a full description of his drum kit setup, his biggest influences, favorite guitarists and more.
