Kevin Clark, who played Freddy “Spazzy McGee” Jones, the drummer in School of Rock, died on May 26. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Clark, who was 32, was hit by a driver while biking on the Northwest Side around 1:20 a.m. Clark wasn’t an actor but a musician; he got his start by drumming on pots and pans at age 3, as his mother, Allison, told the Sun-Times. “He’s got a heart of gold.”
