This is a terribly sad story, and comes, for me, on a day of utter depression.
According to Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation, San Diego native Tyson Montrucchio, a member of metal bands Downspell and Scumchrist, is dead tonight, after being pulled off of life support.
“I just got word from a friend that our friend Tyson Montrucchio did not wake up this morning, is brain dead and on life support and will be taken off life support momentarily,” writes Ryan online.
Montrucchio was also a director, who shot Cattle Decap’s “A Body Farm” video, and even shot stuff for Steve-O, Brutal Truth and Napalm Death.
“He’s leaving behind quite a legacy and many, many friends that love him and that he loved right back,” writes Ryan. “I saw him the other night at our show and only got to get in a quick ‘What’s up?’ knowing we’d see each other eventually that night, but never did.
“I’ll always regret that,” Ryan writes. “We love you Tyson, and you will be missed.”
Our thoughts are will Montrucchio’s family and friends at this time of sorrow.
