Biography

RockBoar.com Picture    Bruce Kenneth Waibel was an American musician who played for several artists and bands. He was last remembered for playing bass guitar and touring with rock band FireHouse.

    In 1982, Waibel joined the Gregg Allman Band as a roadie. Eventually he started playing guitar but switched to bass guitar during his last 7 years with the band. He recorded three albums with them, earning two gold records.

     Waibel also performed with Marshall Tucker, Captain Beyond, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rick Derringer and others. He met guitarist Bill Leverty (guitarist of FireHouse) in 2000 and was invited to audition for the band that year. He played with them for three years, recording one album (O2). He left the band in 2003 because he wanted to spend more time with his family. He also played bass on Leverty's first solo album, "Wanderlust".

     On September 2, 2003, Waibel was found dead at a friend's home in Florida.
