It’s a really sad morning this morning as I find out that one of my favorite musicians in the world died this morning (or last night, it really depends on where you live on this planet). Tony Sly from the Punk Rock band No Use For A Name, at the age of 41, has passed away. No known cause of death has been released as of the moment, so I’m going to assume it was just sleep death.
Personally he was one of my favorite musicians and I actually had the privilege to have a few conversations with him before he passed (Thanks for all the replies, Tony!). Sadly I never got to go to any of his shows since NUFAN never came to the country that I currently live in and if I was not in the area of the show(s), so I guess I’ll never get to see them live… oh well.
I really wish No Use For A Name and Tony’s family (especially Fiona, his daughter) the best!
