Kingfish Guitarist Danny DeGennaro’s Death Ruled a Homicide

Kingfish guitarist Danny DeGennaro, 56, died on Wednesday, December 28 at his home in the Philadelphia suburb of Levittown. Police have ruled the death a homicide caused by a gun shot wound to the chest. Paramedics made attempts to revive DeGennaro at the scene before taking him to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

DeGennaro is best known for his tenure in San Francisco band Kingfish, which he joined in 1979 alongside New Riders bassist Dave Torbert, drummer Steve Shive and guitarist Steve Kimock. He remained with the band until the release of their most recent studio album Sundown on the Forest in 1999. DeGennaro rejoined with Kingfish in 2010 to perform on their Live and Kicking tour.

The guitarist first rose to popularity when he formed Danny D and The Torpedoes in the ’70s. He has also performed alongside Bob Weir, the late Clarence Clemons, Vassar Clements, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and many more. In addition, his own Danny DeGennaro Band featured funk guitarist T.J. Tindall and Parliament Funkadelic’s Michael Hampton.

A message posted to the Danny DeGennaro Band Facebook page reads:

“The entire remaining members of the Danny DeGennaro Band, although we are devastated, emotionally lost and shocked, want to thank all of you for your devotion and kindness. We are discussing tributing Dan in the manner he would have loved.”
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

I only got to see him play once but his contribution on guitar took the music to a whole different level.Of course,I saw him as part of Kingfish in 1975 at the Trenton Speedway...I was more focused on Bob Weir,being the second time I had seen him perform
