Kath carried guns regularly, according to Seraphine, and enjoyed shooting them.
On January 23, 1978, at a party at roadie Don Johnson’s house, Kath began to play with his guns.
It was reported he spun a revolver on his finger, though the gun was not loaded, and continued to play with it, despite calls for him to be careful.
After this, Kath picked up a semi-automatic pistol and checked the empty magazine before pulling the trigger.
Tragically, and with Kath being unaware of it, the gun still had a round in the chamber, and he died instantly from the gunshot.
