The music world was rocked this week by the news of the death of Hawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert (pictured 2nd from left). He apparently died in his sleep sometime between friday night and Sunday morning. Details are sketchy at this time. He was found when the band were getting ready for their soundcheck on Saturday Night for one of their gigs. They released an official statement on their website which read as follows:
"Today is probably the worst day ever … Casey Calvert passed away in his sleep last night … We’ve spent the entire day trying to come to grips with this and figure out as much as possible. At this time we’re not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed. We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal.”
