Stones leave scene of aide's death
TORONTO -- The Rolling Stones have moved
out of the North York private school where their
long-time crew chief died during a Thursday
The band's equipment was shipped out of the
prestigious Crescent School in a fleet of vans
The Stones are expected to continue their
Toronto rehearsals at the CTV studios in the
Old Masonic Temple, on Yonge St.
Lead singer Mick Jagger and the rest of the
Stones yesterday posted a memorial to Royden
Walter Magee III, on their Web site, saying
band and crew members "are deeply
saddened" by the death of their longtime friend.
Magee, 54, apparently died of a heart attack
but the Toronto coroner's office would not
release the cause of death yesterday because
next of kin in the U.S. had not yet been notified.
Magee, a Michigan resident originally from
Utica, N.Y., began working with the band in
Police and paramedics were called to the
school on Bayview Ave. about 9:15 p.m.
"He (Magee) was complaining that he wasn't
feeling well and we responded to the call," said
Sgt. Dave Harper.
Paramedics who arrived at the school found a
Stones' medical aide already working on
him,"trying to resuscitate him," a Toronto
ambulance source told The Sun.
Magee was dead on arrival at Sunnybrook
hospital shortly after 10 p.m.
The Stones are rumoured to be staying in
upscale homes in Rosedale.
Their current tour, which is still unnamed, is set
to begin in Boston on Sept. 3. The Stones will
wind their way through eight U.S. cities before
arriving back in Toronto to play two sold-out
shows -- Oct. 16 at the Air Canada Centre and
two nights later at SkyDome.

||Anyone know if they started rehearsing at the Masonic Temple last night or will the start tonight (Monday)?
||They don't rehearse on weekends. Tonight is a pretty good bet.
||I won't be able to make it until Thurs. or Fri. maybe see you and Tom there and hopefully see and hear the Stones! Last time they were at the Masonic Temple I did catch them working on a (rare) Sat. and got some really good photos and autographs. But I won't count seeing them on most weekends.
||I sincerely hope Chuch made peace with anyone he may have been feuding with before he left us.
It does a body and soul much good.
Never go to bed after posting angry - Maxlugar 7/22/02.
