I've always enjoyed his playing on the Montreux DVD. I can't say I know much more about him, but now I will look into his music. RIP :/

He seemed like a special character. And I mean that respectfully.

RIP

A true artist! He left som much music behind for us to enjoy. His drumming was super on Five Miles Out + he had the coolest stage presence.
He left far to early.

Scottish percussionist and composer Morris Pert has died, aged 62.

Along with contributing drums and percussion to the albums Platinum, QE2, Five Miles Out and The Killing Fields, Morris co-wrote the tracks Family Man and Orabidoo. He was also part of Mike's touring band on the 1981 and 1982 tours.

He passed away on April 27th 2010.

Thanks, Juan-Carlos Martin and Les Wood

So sad.  I recently checked out a couple of things on the Internet about him, because I wanted to know what he has been doing the last years.  A truly dedicated and fine musician.

My god! He wasn't even that old... He seemed such a great personality and lots of fun to work with.

After Piere Moerlen another great percussionist who has passed away.

Rest in Peace Morris!

Thats terrible. I was recently listening to his work and emailed him a few years ago to which I got a nice reply. I asked if he remembered everyone at the 1982 Manchester gig singing Happy Birthday to him and he did remember it.

62 is no age and right in the middle of a project. Morris and Pierre gone is a great loss. Gutted.
