Mitch Lucker's Wife: "I was in front of him begging him not to leave the house"
As previously reported HERE, Mitch Lucker, vocalist of SUICIDE SILENCE, passed away yesterday due to injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. A speech by Mitch’s wife Jolie filmed during last nights vigil in Huntington Beach, California confirms what some Los Angeles news outlets reported last night, which is that Mitch had been drinking prior to the accident that killed him. Here is what Jolie said during the vigil:
"He was an alcoholic, and it’s been a big battle. I tried to stop him. I was in front of him begging him not to leave the house. Begging him. Like,”Just seriously, for us, don’t leave.” And he did. And this is what happened. It’s a wake up call. He was an amazing man, a wonderful father, and a great husband. And now he’s gonna miss out on watching Kenadee grow because he decided to drink and drive. Just don’t, just think before you guys do something stupid, please learn from it. Please."
HERE are reactions from the Heavy Music community!
We would like to offer our condolences to his family, friends, band members, fans worldwide, and everyone at Nuclear Blast Records and Century Media Records, who are affected by this loss.
