No Use For A Name: Frontsänger Tony Sly verstorben

Wie das Musiklabel Fat Wreck Chords auf seiner Webseite bekannt gab, ist Tony Sly, Frontmann der Punkrockband No Use For A Name, am 01. August verstorben.

Weitere Detalis zu dem Umständen sind bisher nicht bekannt.

No Use For A Name-Bassist Matt Riddle äußerte sich auf seiner Facebook:

„hello everybody.
this is matt from no use for a name.

i’ve learned over the years there’s really no right way to talk about this stuff. i was kind of hoping it wouldn’t get out so fast for his family’s sake but it’s a little late for that now. i see that this news has gotten around pretty fast.

so i wanted to tell you all personally that this morning i found out that yesterday tony passed away. i’m not sure of all the details yet, and i don’t think that’s really important. what’s important is i lost a great friend and you lost a great songwriter. i’ve been playing with him for 15 years? 16? i haven’t processed it yet.

i’ve been on the phone all day with friends and family. i’m not looking forward to it sinking in. i’m worried sick for his wife and kids. i knew tony very well and he would definitely want to thank you for all the love and support for both no use and his solo career. if this doesn’t sound like a professional statement, it’s because it’s not. it’s just me venting and i wanted to let you guys know personally.

Auch Fat Mike von NOFX äußerte sich zu dieser traurigen Nachricht:
“One of my dearest friends and favorite song writers has gone way too soon. Tony, you will be greatly missed.”
