I didn’t personally know Marvin McQuitty, but from the tweets I’ve been reading since yesterday he touched many lives through the life he led and through his legendary drum skills. Marvin McQuitty was 46 when he died. Our prayers go out to his wife, daughters, family and friends.
According to Modern Drummer, McQuitty played with many artists including Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Israel and New Breed, Stevie Wonder and many more.
