Jim Gordon Drummer for Eric Clapton and convicted ki!!er, di*d at age 77. Eric Clapton and George Harrison’s drummer, who won a Grammy, Jim Gordon, has died. In 1983, he was labeled with schizophrenia and found guilty of ki!!ing his mother. He was 77.
Gordon’s publicist, Bob Merlis, told The Post on Wednesday that Gordon di*d of natural causes on Monday at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville “after a long incarceration and lifelong battle with mental illness.”
The Post tried to get word from Clapton’s representative. Gordon was born on July 14, 1945. He played on the Beach Boys’ “Pet Sounds” album from 1966 and helped the Everly Brothers with their music.
In 1969 and 1970, he went on tour with Clapton with the band Delaney & Bonnie. Clapton and Gordon were in the band Derek and the Dominos, but they were only together for a short time.
George Harrison’s 1970 solo record, “All Things Must Pass,” was made with help from members of the band.

Gordon and Clapton also worked together on the 1971 hit song “Layla” by Clapton. The only Grammy Gordon ever got was for that song.
In 1970, Rita Coolidge, a singer, and songwriter who was Gordon’s girlfriend at the time, said that he attacked her in a hotel room. He later rejected this claim.

Gordon killed his mother, Osa Gordon, on June 3, 1983, by stabbing her with a hammer and a knife. Osa had lived 72 years. He said he ki!!ed her because of a thought that kept returning to him.
He was given a right diagnosis of schizophrenia after he was @rrested. Gordon di*d on Monday. He had been in prison since he was found guilty in 1984.
Even though he was diagnosed with schizophrenia, the judge decided that under the insanity laws of the time in California, he could not be found not guilty because of insanity.
He was denied parole for the tenth time in March 2018 because he stopped attending his parole hearings.
