Folk legend Gordon Lightfoot's sidekick John Stockfish has died, aged 69.
The bass player passed away from natural causes last week, according to a post on Lightfoot's website.
Classically trained, Stockfish joined forces with Lightfoot in the mid-1960s and performed on the folk star's classic track Sundown.
He also worked with Jim Croce, Tommy Hunter, Mel Torme and Cab Calloway.
