"I'm saddened by the news of the passing of drummer and educator Kim Plainfield. During his professional career which spanned four decades, he accumulated an impressive list of performance and recording credits. Through his longtime affiliations with both Drummers Collective and Berklee College of Music where he taught, he established himself as one of the foremost percussion educators in the country."

"It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Drummers Collective Faculty Chairman, Kim Plainfield.
Kim had a huge heart, strong opinions, and a passion for teaching and life. He was an irreplaceable asset to The Collective, being a huge part of our 40 year history since the beginning of his tenure in 1979.
His spirit and impact as a teacher will live on forever. We have lost a mentor, teacher, friend, and brother.
Kim was an extremely talented drummer who knew when to be serious but always found time for a laugh.
We are all attempting to comprehend this devastating news since Kim meant a lot to all of us. He touched countless students' lives as he prepared them for careers in music, always getting the best out of each of them.
We are all grateful that we were lucky enough to have had him in our lives.
We are awaiting word from Kim's family regarding the arrangements and will inform everyone so they can pay their respects. We will also be planning an event at the school to celebrate Kim's life and contribution to the drumming and music world as well as to The Collective.
We will miss you. Rest In peace, Kim"
