Rob Tyner
Birth: Nov. 12, 1944
Death: Sep. 18, 1991

Musician. Born Robert Derminer, he adopted his surname in tribute to the jazz pianist McCoy Tyner. In 1977, Tyner collaborated with a group called "Eddie and the Hot Rods" in a UK tour to promote pop rock group "MC5" record vinyl reissues. Returning to the United States, he auditioned as the bass player for "MC5", but the band felt his talents would be best used as a lead vocalist. He later operated as the Rob Tyner Band which became "Rob Tyner & the National Rock Group". This group performed for various concerts, promotion benefits and released the album "Blood Brothers" in 1990. He died of a heart attack in Berkley, Michigan, at age 46. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
