Evile Bassist Passes Away
2009-10-06 by Jorn van Schaïk | 49 Comments

From the Earache blog:

Sadly, just a few days into their European tour with Amon Amarth, Evile's

Mike Alexander was suddenly taken ill and rushed to hospital, but tragically

passed away in Lulea, Sweden.

Evile members Matt Drake, Ol Drake and Ben Carter have released the

following statement:

"This is so hard to find the words to express fully how we feel. We can't

believe or accept what's happened. One minute we're talking to our buddy,

Mike, the next minute we can never speak to him again.

There's so many things rushing through our heads that we want to say, do and

feel. We half expect him to come round the corner and call us 'dickheads'.

We can't get our heads around it.

It upsets us so much that he was away from his family when this happened,

although knowing Mike, we're at least glad he was on tour doing what he

loves.

We're lost for words. We all miss him so much already. He was such a

headstrong, genuinely nice guy who loved music and his family. We've got so

many brilliant memories with him.

Our hearts go out to his daughter, family and friends at this tragic,

difficult time.

Mike is much loved and is sorely missed.

Rest in peace, brother."


RIP.

I'm super confused, what did he die from? Sounds like whatever killed him killed him really fast. Little bit scary.
