    Default Wayne Static dead at 48

    Static-X Frontman Wayne Static Dead at Age 48

    We’ve just received the tragic news that Wayne Static, of industrial metal act Static-X, has passed away.

    While no official cause of death has been announced, the following message was posted at 11 P.M. on Static-X’s Facebook page:

    “November 1, 2014 – Platinum selling musician Wayne Richard Wells, better known as WAYNE STATIC, passed away at the age of 48.

    WAYNE STATIC was the enigmatic former frontman and namesake of Static-X, who later forged a successful solo career. Wayne was scheduled to co-headline tours with Powerman 5000 and Drowning Pool over the next several months.

    No additional information is available at this time.”

    Our thoughts go out to his family and bandmates.

    I was never a huge fan of the band, but I met him at NAMM a couple times and he was one of the nicer guys.

    Of course, his style of industrial metal wasn't necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but I DID enjoy his music in the right setting and I WAS lucky enough to cross paths with him a half-dozen times over the years (including looking forward to a scheduled solo show THIS NEXT WEEK w/Powerman 5K) and I had always found him approachable and down-to-earth every time I'd met him.

    Hopefully tonight wasn't a waste and you did finally find your peace, Wayne. You will be missed.
