Earlier today, we reported the sad news of the passing of Wayne Static. Based on some tributes posted by musicians and friends, drugs were suspected as being the cause of death.
An official press release from the family of Static refutes those assumptions. According to the official statement, Static died in his sleep. Here is the press release in full:
HOLLYWOOD, CA (November 1, 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 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.
