Shane Gibson of Korn and Stork has passed away at age 35
Touring guitarist Shane Gibson has passed away at the age of 35. Gibson, who toured with Korn from 2007 to 2010, died after complication from a rare blood-clotting disorder and passed away on April 15 in Birmingham, Ala.
Gibson was best known as the guitarist who took the place of original Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, when Welch left the band for several years. Gibson also toured with Korn frontman Jonathan Davis’ solo band the SFAs and was a member of the band Stork.
In a statement on his official Instagram page, Korn drummer Ray Luzier said, “Death is so strange and the timing of it is never right. I’m still in disbelief that we lost Shane Gibson. You were way too young to leave this planet. You were one of the most talented, funniest and caring people I’ve ever known.”
Luzier added, “I’m honored to have shared the stage and travel many places with you for so many years. My heart goes out to the family and friends that you’ve touched in your short life. You will truly be missed and never forgotten. RIP.”
