Drummer Powell Dies

Veteran hard-rock drummer Cozy Powell -- who since the 1970s had

provided a backbeat for musicians including Jeff Beck, Black

Sabbath, Keith Emerson & Greg Lake and

Whitesnake -- died Sunday when his car crashed into barriers along a

British highway. The 50-year-old skinsman's latest release, The Best of Cozy

Powell, was a compilation of his solo tracks.
