Scottish musician, drummer and band member of the group, Average White Band (AWB.)

Most of the group were already veterans of bands of the 60's before their initial debut in July 1972. Their opening act for Eric Clapton in 1973 and a debut album, "Show Your Hand," was a very slow start and the band did not achieve much success until 1974 with the release of another album, "Pick Up the Pieces."

The record's huge success was tempered by the 23 September 1974 death of McIntosh at a Hollywood party after overdosing on strychnine-laced heroin.
