Mick Brigden, a tour manager for The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison, has died less than a month after the band’s drummer Charlie Watts passed away.

The 73-year-old died earlier this week after attempting to dig a grave for his family’s dog at his home in Santa Rosa, California.

TMZ report that Brigden was killed after the grave collapsed in on him.

The publication reports that their 14-year-old Australian Shepherd was in poor health and was put down two days after Mick’s death.

His official cause of death has not been disclosed.

Mick began his career as a concert promoter, and worked with The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Joe Satriani, Carlos Santana and many others.

Rest in Peace, Mick.
