Former Tommy Bolin manager Barry Fey has died at the age of 73. The Boulder local newspaper suggests that Police are investigating his death, which may have been suicide. Although Deep Purple fans will know him primarily through the Bolin connection, Barry did promote a number of Deep Purple shows in America via his agency Feyline before Bolin joined. His promotion of live music however began a decade before that in the Chicago area in 1965 before he moved to Denver two years later. He also promoted the famous U2 Red Rocks concert.
