Former TWISTED METHOD Bassist: ANDY HOWARD's Passing Is 'Sudden And Shocking'

Ex-TWISTED METHOD bassist Derek DeSantis has issued the following statement regarding the passing of former TWISTED METHOD guitarist Andy Howard:

"Me as well as Tripp [real name Derrick Tribbett; former TWISTED METHOD singer, currently in new band with Derek called MAKESHIFT ROMEO] and Ben [Goins; ex-TWISTED METHOD drummer] appreciate everyone's messages and comments sent about Andy. His passing is sudden and shocking; no one is taking this harder than us three and his family. All of your guys' support shows us the constant love and attention we are more than grateful to receive. Andy would be happy to see all of the inmates/friends that have responded to this."

As previously reported, Andy was found dead in his bed Friday afternoon (September 16). He was 23 years old. Howard left TWISTED METHOD back in May, citing his desire to take care of his twin girls at home as the reason for his departure.
