Brett Tuggle, a renowned keyboardist, Died at the Age of 70


After a long battle with illness, Brett Tuggle, a renowned keyboardist, died at the age of 70.

When Fleetwood Mac broke up, he formed The David Lee Roth Band and was one of the band’s founding members. Roth’s biggest solo success in 1988, “Just Like Paradise,” was co-written by Tuggle and Roth.

Over the course of his 50-year career, Brett has collaborated with a broad spectrum of performers, including Rick Springfield, Jimmy Page, John Kay and Steppenwolf, Tommy Shaw of Styx, and Mitch Ryder.

‘Our precious Brett Tuggle made it home tonight,’ Springfield said on Twitter as he posted a picture of the musician. A lovely spirit, may God richly bless it.

“His loved ones were at his side the whole time he was sick. He was a wonderful dad. He provided me a soundtrack to my life “he went on to explain.

When he was only a few years old in Denver, Colorado, he began playing the piano and subsequently the guitar. Small-scale performances in Denver were his first foray into the music business.

Although his career got off in 1981 when he joined John Kay & Steppenwolf, Tuggle met Springfield and joined his band in 1982, which is when he really began to shine. He was also a founding member of the band David Lee Roth, with whom he toured for several years from 1986 to 1994. As a duo, they penned “Just Like Paradise.”

In 1992, Tuggle was hired by Mick Fleetwood to perform in the band’s side project, the Zoo, which led to his becoming a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1997 when the band reunited.

He was kicked out of the band in 2018 and earlier claimed that Stevie Nicks felt he was too close to Lindsey Buckingham, who had been ousted from the band. However, due to conflicting schedules, Tuggle was unable to accompany them both on their solo travels.

“Stevie told me, ‘You’re going to have to make a decision,'” As far as Rolling Stone is concerned, Tuggle said so in 2020. “I remarked, ‘Stevie, you know, I really like playing with you.’ I’m here for you. There is no band for Lindsey. Then she remarked, “He’s in need of decent people,” to which he nodded. When I went to do Lindsey’s thing, she appeared OK with it. But in the end, she may have seen me as a bit of a deserter for heading to Lindsey’s camp.”

It was also “very shocking” for him to get the call informing him that he was being kicked out of the band.

As he noted, “I also recognized that I was in the thick of the politics of Lindsey and Stevie and this band and there was nothing I was going to be able to do about it. My relationship with Lindsey was over; I had to accept it.
