Greg Arama, bassist for The Amboy Dukes, is killed when he crashes his 1976 Harley-Davidson.
Greg Arama was the mastermind behind the great bass line in the Amboy Dukes song "Journey to the Center of the Mind", a #16 hit on the Billboard charts in 1968.
After the Amboy Dukes, Arama formed Ursa Major with fellow Detroit-area guitarist Dick Wagner (Lou Reed, Alice Cooper). Ursa Major released one album in 1972, simply titled: "Ursa Major."
Sadly, Greg Arama was killed in California after losing control of his 1976 Harley-Davidson XLCH Sportster.
