Orange County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed that Iron Butterfly bassist, Lee Dorman, was found dead at approximately 9 a.m. Friday morning. He was 70 years old.
E! News reports that Dorman, 70, was found in his car, dead, from what appeared to be natural causes. Lee had a history of heart trouble so no foul play is suspected. Huffington Post reported that he may have been on his way to a doctors appointment.
Gail Krause, spokesperson for the sheriff’s department, stated an investigation is under way.
Iron Butterfly was known as a psychedelic rock band from the 1960s. The bands most popular song, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” the title track from their second album, sold more than 30 million copies.

In January of 2012 Iron Butterfly fans had to say goodbye guitarist, Larry Reinhard. Reinhard and Dorman co-found the band Captain Beyond before joining Iron Butterfly.
