Written by on July 10, 2021


10 July 1984, Session drummer and former member of Derek and the Dominos, Jim Gordon, was sentenced to 16 years to life in prison after being found guilty of murdering his mother. It was after he was arrested that he was properly diagnosed with schizophrenia and, although at the trial the court accepted that Gordon had acute schizophrenia, he was not allowed to use an insanity defense because of changes to California law. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/liner-notes/jim-gordon-the-man-rock-roll-forgot/
