Wayne "Static" Wells dead at 48

In a rude awakening today (thanks Travis) I learned of the death of Wayne Richard Wells, better known as WAYNE STATIC of Static-X. This will certainly dash any hopes of a band reunion. His passing came mere days before his 49th birthday. Details regarding the causes of death have yet to be released, but a relatively young rock-star on tour leaves little to wonder about.

UPDATE 11/03/2014
Today is a sad day in the music industry – Front-man and founding member WAYNE STATIC of STATIC-X passed away quietly in his sleep at his home last night.

The couple [Wayne Static and Tera Wray] was getting ready to leave for a Fall/Winter tour this morning. They were to have left the night before on Halloween, but decided they would head out early in the morning November 1st.

The couple, known for partying heavy, had left hard drugs in 2009 and had not touched them since. Static’s first solo album – Pighammer – was a tribute to his new non-drug life and hoped it would help others to get clean from hard chemical drugs.

More official information about his passing will be released in the following days. This is not a drug related incident or an O.D. Please be courteous to his family and wife and leave positive messages.
