It’s been a rough few weeks in the metal community for death and dying. Starting with Former Marilyn Manson guitarist Scott Putesky, we’ve also lost Pilgrim’s Jon Rossi, who was only 26, and it seems like American Head Charge’s Chad Hanks is suffering from a terminal illness as well. Now it’s been reported that Scott Willey, who was the singer of Vital Remains from 2008 to 2011, has died.
Willey, whose cause of death is unspecified, isn’t even the first Vital Remains vocalist to pass away. Theprp reports that former singer Chris Ross, who played with the band back in 1997, was murdered this past Summer.
