I'm going to start with apologizing for not posting in awhile as college life seems to be catching up with me. [damn assignments/tests/ETC] However, that's not why I'm posting today. For those that are not aware, Mitch Lucker [lead vocalist of the metal band Suicide Silence] passed away earlier this morning [November 1st, 2012] in a motorcycle crash. As a HUGE fan of the metal genre, I cannot believe how heartbreaking this news is. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's currently upset by this turn of events. In fact, if you go on Twitter- [assuming you have an account] the hash-tag '#ThankYouMitchLucker' is trending currently. I'm still feeling a little bit of shock over the news as Suicide Silence was one of the first 'true' metal bands I got into. The rest of the band had this to say about the situation;
"There's no easy way to say this. Mitch passed away earlier this morning from injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. This is completely devastating to all of us and we offer our deepest condolences to his family. He will be forever in our hearts. R.I.P. Mitchell Adam Lucker. We love you, brother."
The part that will continue to break my heart more & more is knowing about Kenadee Lucker- his 5 year old daughter. [she's the one in the picture with him above] Don't get me wrong, I don't have kids [yet..] but I cannot imagine the thoughts that his family is having, especially his daughter. The motorcycle accident that claimed Mitch apparently happened in Huntington Beach, California, only a few hours after he tweeted a photo of himself on his Twitter account: @MitchLuckerSS in his Halloween costume with the message, "The dead are living..." What this means still remains a mystery to me, but what I do know is there are millions [if not billions] of fans, crying out to the sky about this. I know I'm not the only one ! I feel like I've gone to far into this, that's what I get for being a music fan; I just want to finish off with saying thanks. Thanks Mitch Adam Lucker for making the music you made [make?], and I hope where ever you are; you're still rocking harder than them all. You WILL be missed; RIP
