    Drowning Pool Lead Singer Dies
    Thu Aug 15,12:26 AM ET

    MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - The lead singer of the rock band Drowning Pool was found dead on the band's tour bus Wednesday, police said. The cause of death was being investigated.


    Band mates found David Williams, 30, Prince William County police spokeswoman Kim Chinn said. The band had gone into a hotel to check in and when Williams didn't follow, they went back to check on him.

    Chinn said an autopsy would be performed, though she said it could be days before a cause of death could be determined.

    The band had come from Indianapolis the night before with the Ozzfest concert tour, Chinn said.

    Steve Karas, a spokesman for the band's record label, Wind-up Records, said Drowning Pool was scheduled to play Thursday in suburban Washington.

    "He was somebody who knew how to entertain," Karas said Wednesday night. "He cared more about his fans than most artists and, genuinely, in his heart, gave everything he had every time he was on stage.

    Drowning Pool's debut album, "Sinner," has sold 1.2 million copies since its release last June, according to SoundScan.
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    I heard about this today and was really bummed out.

    Not only did he have an excellent voice, but from what I could tell he was a very cool and sincere person. I've heard him interviewed twice on a local station and both times he expressed his deep appreciation for his fans.

    I'm interested to see what the cause of death was.

    Sad news. I'm not a Drowning Pool fan but it's too bad he died so young.

    Could it be another musician who died from a drug overdose? I hope not because it is getting ridiculous.

    Not a fan of Drowning Pool but that is pretty sad.

    DLR's Cock - do you HAVE to be such an ass? I think you would jump into some shitty swamp in New Jersey if your boy DLR died from too many hair weaves.

    Not a fan either. Too many are dying way too young.
    But another shitty band down, a shitload more to go.

    I can't say that I'm a fan of Drowning Pool, but that really is too bad. 30 years old is way too young to die - hell, I'm older than that. Those guys are from Dallas. One of the local radio stations talked to the guy's friends and family and they said he was not a drug abuser. That could be true, but a 30 year old rock star dying suddenly always make you wonder.

    im pretty sure that singer isnt 30 you may want to add 8 to 10 years to that. i remember when they first came out febuary 2001 he said he was about ready to quit music cause he was nearly 40.

    Who?

    J/k!

    It's pretty sad, but what's even worse is (the autopsy was inconclusive) I think everyone knows what killed him.
    They've got a killer-version of Metallica's "Creeping Death" on the upcoming Ozzfest CD.

    Didn't like that band, however it sucks that he died.
    It would have been ironic if he drowned in a pool.

    DROWNING POOL Frontman "Not Likely" To Have Choked On Own Vomit: Police Spokesperson - Aug. 19, 2002

    The Prince William Police Department in Manassas, Virginia, are calling the rumors that DROWNING POOL frontman Dave Williams choked on his own vomit after a night of drinking "unlikely," according to the latest press reports.

    When asked if they're leaning towards any particular cause of death, Sgt. Kim Chinn, the public information office supervisor for the Prince William Police Department, stated: "No. We're not leaning any way at all and we'll see what the report reveals, and hopefully we'll know something when we get the results of that back."

    Meanwhile, DROWNING POOL guitarist C.J. Pierce has indicated there had been nothing unusual about the last night of Williams' life.

    "People have been asking and I want everyone to know, that night was no different from any other — it was actually pretty lame," said Pierce.

    As previously reported, the autopsy performed by the county medical officer on Williams proved to be inconclusive, and toxicology reports are currently being run. The singer was discovered by his bandmates dead on a tour bus parked outside a Holiday Inn in Manassas on Wednesday, August 14th at about 4:15 PM ET.

    Maybe, in the tradition of Spinal Tap, he choked on someone else's vomit!! [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
