Co-founder of southern rockers Molly Hatchet, Danny Joe Brown, has died in Florida of complications from pneumonia at the age of 53.
In 1975 Brown co-founded Molly Hatchet, a hard-rocking six-piece ensemble with three lead guitarists inspired by the boogie and blues of Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Brown quit Molly Hatchet in 1980, citing exhaustion, put out a solo album and then rejoined the group in the 1980s.
