We were very sad to hear about the passing of Pat King. Our thoughts and condolences go to his family and friends. Here's a short tribute video. Please do share your thoughts and memories of Pat with us. ... See MoreSee Less

He was a beloved member of our community in Olvera, Spain, where he lived his last 20 years. A kind heart, the spirit of a teenager. He always took pictures of every performance that was going on, always encouraging the youth to keep on with arts and also taking part as guitar player on spanish folk music events... We couldnt ask for more, he never said who he was but eventually we recognize him. Got no more words to express my sincere admiration. Goodbye amigo, I will play the boogie woogie for you in Edinburgh this week and make the people dance honouring you.

We are so sad. His great bass playing we only know from CDs, because we from eastern Germany were only able to follow the band from the 1990s on. And there Pat was always a good friend when we were with the band, selling the merchandise some times. We spent a lot of time with him, and we enjoyed every minute. Although he did several jobs at the same time, driving the van with the band equipment, often selling at the merchandise, and also working as the lighting engineer of the band, he never lost his special humour. One story: The band should play in Germany. At a tent, it was summer but we stood there in a horrible thunderstorm and waited for the doors to open. Then we could go in and all the fans waited and waited in that overcrowded tent. We heard from the band, who were already there with their nightliner, that Pat with the van was still on the road, because he had a traffic jam… so the equipment was still not here. Very late an unknown lorry arrived behind the tent and everybody startet to unload and build up. Finally the band began to play. Pat stood next to me near the mixer and he looked really exhausted. I asked him what happened, and if he had problems in that queue. He smiled at me and answered: „I did not stuck in a queue. I WAS THE QUEUE! I drove my van at the autobahn and looked aside and saw my tire passing me.“ ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ He could manage to stop the van without having an accident. Ufff! But of course after that he had to call the police, and then for another lorry ( on a Sunday late afternoon! ), and then the whole equipment had to be unloaded and loaded into the new van… what an horror! On the autobahn… I would get a mental breakdown in such a situation! But Pat stood there and smiled and said only - there was no queue. I was the queue. ๐Ÿ˜Ž R.I.P. Pat, you will live forever in our memories. Love, K&T โค๏ธ

I met Pat seven years ago when we moved to Spain through our mutual love of photography. He became a great friend whose company I shall miss immesuarably. Here's Pat clowning for me 18 months or so ago. He was always 'up for a laugh' and never ever took himself seriously. RIP Pat, it was so good to have known you.

It was sad, rest in peace King. Condolences to family and friendsโคโคโค Many fantastic songs and a fantastic band.

R.I.P. Pat King. His Bass on Watch, Chance and Angel Station is Incredible.

God Bless you Pat , I know you will be with the Angels. Rest in peace ๐Ÿ™

Sorry to add another comment. But I had a chat with Patrick via YT regarding a Chapter Three track in 2020, what a lovely man . God Bless and rest peace ๐Ÿ™

Further to my other post. Just last June Pat visited to help me with a project for a course and again was my model. Here he is doing what so many people remember and loved.

My favorite member of the band...he had so much fun in the live version of Don’t Kill it Carol...Rest with Peace Pat.

Manfred can take a bad song even a great song and make it so much better. Love him and all of the different line ups which I've seen and listened to since the very early 70's . Absolutely Mantastic

I agree Manfred. Remembering all your diferent performances of "She Was". Even if your head speaker worked or not, for me much better than the main song "Blinded by the light". "She was", my favorite, maybe you bring it back on stage?! Cheers!

Hope Manfred finish a new MMEB album. Fans and band need that now. ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽถ A light in the tunnel.

I had tickets for Legends Oslo in June and Konserthuset in April before that, but now it’s all falling apart. Thank you Manfred, Mick, Chris etc for all the music experiences. I’ll crawl into my cave with my CDs now. โค๏ธ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜ข

I have a few of their albums and they were/are brilliant.

Wish you would tour here in the states ๐Ÿ˜€

A Proudly South African musician.

The Roaring Silence my very first album I bought ๐Ÿ‘‚ ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™

Bucket list of seeing you rock live! Hard rockers here in northern Minnesota the States!

Agreed Manfred, but if you listen to the actual brazilian music....

Just wish MMEB would play the uk

Hi, Mannyโค

It's actually called having your own opinion...

Come on without, come on within; you ain't seen nothing like the Mighty ...

Very true, but I like all of the MMEB original stuff much better then blinded by the light.

This week in 1976, the West German leg of the 'Roaring Silence' Tour commenced in Offenbach. A specific themed tour leaflet was created for this leg of the tour and this can be seen here.
