Obituary for Edward Hoh, Drummer

Fast Eddie Hoh was a larger than life character and was known for doing the best, most intricate riffs on songs like "PVS", "Star Collector" and "Goin Down".  He was keeping time with and for a lot of great groups.


Melanie Mitchell includes a memory from Peter (taken from a comment on FB): I always think of Peter's comment on The Devil and Peter Tork, when there's a particularly intricate fill (I think that's the term) near the end of Salesman. "You know Micky did not play that drum lick," he said. "Almost certainly Fast Eddie Hoh." Which it was.

Life Legacy


Edward “Fast Eddie” Hoh, age 71, passed away Saturday, November 07, 2015 in Westmont, IL. An American rock drummer who was active in the 1960s. He played the drums on several well-known rock songs and albums, including those by Donovan and the Monkees. He also performed at the seminal 1967 Monterey Pop Festival as a member of the Mamas and the Papas touring band. In 1968, he participated in the recording of Super Session, the highly successful 1968 Mike Bloomfield/Al Kooper/Stephen Stills collaboration album. Hoh first became known around 1964 on the Los Angeles club circuit as a drummer for the Joel Scott Hill groups the Strangers and the Invaders. Hill recorded several singles and the Strangers were an opening act for the 1964 T.A.M.I. Show, headlined by the Rolling Stones and James Brown. His flurry of activity came to an end by the early 1970s and has since remained out of the public eye. Services and Interment will be private. Info Knollcrest Funeral Home, 630-932-1500
