Bruce Crump, originaltrummis i det legendariska southern rock-bandet MOLLY HATCHET är död.
Det finns i skrivande stund ingen officiell dödsorsak.
Molly Hatchet meddelar via sin Facebooksida;
“We are mourning the loss of a great friend and talented musician. This is a great loss to the Molly Hatchet family. Our prayers go out to all the family and friends of great friend Bruce. Rest in peace, Bruce. We will always love and remember you.”
Crump var medlem i Molly Hatchet mellan åren 1976-1983 och 1984-1991. Han blev nyligen medlem i det återförenade bandet China Sky.
China Sky har gått ut med följande meddelande;
“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the passing of our brother, Bruce Crump.
This sudden tragedy is like a kick to the gut. We could not have lost a more truly decent human being than Bruce. Our hearts go out to his wife Kristen, his mom, children, and family.
Not only was Bruce a genuinely nice person, but his talent was even bigger than his heart. When he agreed to join us in China Sky, we were humbled that THE Bruce Crump deemed us worthy of his time and talent, and boy, were we ever better off for it. We could not be more proud of the work he did on “China Sky II” and we are forever grateful to him.
I think we can all take just a bit of solace in the fact that he left us with so much of his talent on record over his 35 plus year career. I know his rock solid grooves, and the music he helped create, will be gracing many turntables, tape machines, ipods, smartphones, and whatever technology music comes out of tonight, tomorrow, and for many years to come.
Peace, Bruce, and thank you for being you. We will miss the hell out of you…”
Bruce Crump blev 57 år gammal.
Molly Hatchet kan man se på Sweden Rock Festival, fredagen den 5 juni.
