Iron Butterfly – In A Gadda Da Vida (1968)

by Fine Melodies

a rockin band, pretty good grooves

the mid 70’s bass player of this band had disappeared in 1995 and many thought it was x-files style sketch stuff going on, four years later hikers found his skeletal remains inside a van at the bottom of a malibu canyon ravine. here is some info on it:

 Kramer immersed himself in schooling, studying engineering and getting a job building radar equipment. He graduated from night school with straight A’s and got a job at Northrup, working on the design of the MX missile. At the time of his disappearance, he had reportedly discovered a mathematical formula that would allow matter to travel faster than the speed of light. His involvement in projects of this nature have led to theories that he was abducted or murdered.  What is known is that on Feb. 12, 1995, having spent an hour waiting at Los Angeles International Airport for a business contact who never arrived, he called both his wife and Ron Bushy from his cell phone in his car, leaving Bushy a cryptic message about seeing him  “…on the other side.” According to newspaper reports, Kramer also called 911 just before noon that day and said he was going to commit suicide. Despite this, family members believe he could have been the victim of foul play. After he disappeared, his wife, Jennifer, said her husband “would never, for any reason or under any circumstances, allow himself to completely abandon the family he loves more than life itself.”
