One of Kex Gorin's earliest bands was The Andicaps from Shard End who are known as the first group formed by Jeff Lynne long before he went on to world-wide success with E.L.O. Kex did quite a lot of touring with The Andicaps and this included time spent in both Germany and Finland. Kex also played in a local band called "Paradox" before becoming a founding member of the acclaimed Birmingham rock group "Magnum" with whom he recorded their first four albums. It is his masterful drum-work with Magnum that Kex will likely be most remembered for.
I would like to express my deep sympathy with Kex's family and friends during this difficult time. John Kerton of JLP Events was Kex Gorin's former band-mate in the Andicaps and a life-long friend. John last saw Kex in hospital just before he passed on. He includes a touching tribute to Kex as follows:
