Sugarloaf
 
Jerry Anthony Corbetta of “Sugarloaf – Green-Eyed Lady” – and of the Rock Music Hall of Fame — passed away peacefully in his sleep at 2:30 am on Friday, September 16th, 2016 in his hometown of Denver, Colorado.
Jerry is survived by our loving son, Kyle James Corbetta (Lake County, California); devoted sister Barbara Rogers and her husband, Jerry Rogers of Arvada; Sister Nancy Grafmeyer, nephews Danny, Mike and Vincent Rogers and their beautiful families, many Aunts and Uncles, cousins, grand nieces and nephews, dear close friends and thousands of Classic Rock fans.
Frank Slay, a lifetime friend of Jerry, shared: “I am sorry for everybody’s loss. I was crushed when I heard from Jerry’s sister what was happening. I was thanked by Jerry for what I did for him – but that is nothing compared to what Jerry did for me, just breaks my heart.” God bless your sensitive soul, Jerry, may the angels welcome you with song!
Sugarloaf had two big hits, “Green Eyes Lady” in 1970 and “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You” in 1974. Jerry was a guest on “The Lost 45s” show numerous times. He will be missed.
