Ex-Uriah Heep keyboardist Ken Hensley dead at 75

Ken Hensley, best known as Uriah Heep’s keyboard player and chief songwriter from 1970 to 1980, has died, following a short illness. He was 75. The sad news was delivered today (November 5) by his brother Trevor in a post on Facebook.


“I am writing this with a heavy heart to let you know that my brother Ken Hensley passed away peacefully on Wednesday evening,” Trevor Hensley wrote. “His beautiful wife Monica was at his side and comforted Ken in his last few minutes with us.

We are all devastated by this tragic and incredibly unexpected loss and ask that you please give us some space and time to come to terms with it.

Ken will be cremated in a private ceremony in Spain so please don’t ask for information about a funeral.

Ken has gone but he will never be forgotten and will always be in our hearts.


Stay safe out there.”
