…but four!

I really have never had any time for the Grateful Dead but they do seem at least to be living (ahem) up to their name:

Hippy

Welnick is the fourth keyboard player from the Grateful Dead to have died – founding vocalist and keyboard player Ron McKernan died in 1973 of a gastrointestinal haemorrhage, Keith Godchaux died in a car accident in 1980 and Brent Mydland died in 1990 of a drug overdose.

Bad luck chaps. Not a job likely to be filled soon I would guess.
