Former KORN Touring Guitarist SHANE GIBSON Dead At 35
Former KORN touring guitarist Shane Gibson died earlier today as a result of complications from a blood clotting disorder. He was 35 years old.
Gibson was most recently a member of STORK, the project featuring super drummer Thomas Lang (PAUL GILBERT), lead singer VK Lynne (VITA NOVA, Eve's Apple) and bassist Kelly LeMieux (BUCKCHERRY, GOLDFINGER).
STORK has released the following statement regarding Gibson's passing:
"It is with deepest sadness and regret that we must confirm that STORK founding member and lead guitarist Shane Paul Gibson passed away at 5:45 a.m. on April 15th, 2014 in the UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama as a result of complications from a blood clotting disorder. He was 35 years old.
"Shane was one of the best guitar players the world has ever known and his virtuosity was matched only by his wit and generosity of spirit. He will be missed beyond measure.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and all those who loved him as much as we did."
STORK's second CD, "Broken Pieces", is scheduled for release April 29.
