Orange County Rock Festival to Benefit Iron Butterfly Bassist Lee Dorman

It was nearly 40 years ago when bassist Lee Dorman steadily riffed through Iron Butterfly’s monumental 17-minute rocker “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.” Today, Dorman, who has continued to play with his original bandmates—drummer Ron Bushy, guitar player Charlie Marinkovich, and keyboard player Martin Gerschwitz—needs a new heart.

That’s why they and other friends started a Heart Transplant Fund for Dorman. Proceeds from a June 24 concert Anaheim, California’s Phoenix Club benefits that fund. In addition to Iron Butterfly, the Orange County Rock Festival also features 14 other bands.
