Tommy was a great guitar player and spent time in groups such as The James Gang and Zephyr. He replaced guitarist Richie Blackmore in Deep Purple. He also had a solo career in the early seventies. At one point, he was heavily experimenting with fusion jazz-rock-blues while playing with Billy Cobham, Leland Sklar and Jan Hammer.
While touring with Jeff Beck and Peter Frampton in 1976, he overdosed on a mixture of heroin, alcohol, cocaine and barbiturates on December 4, he was only 24.
