THE END RECORDS On PIGGY: 'We Are Devastated By Tragic Passing Of True Legend'
The staff of The End Records, who recently inked a deal with VOIVOD to release their next studio album, has issued the following statement regarding the passing of VOIVOD guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour:
"We are all devastated by the tragic passing of a true legend, our beloved Denis D'Amour, a.k.a. Piggy. Piggy and the rest of VOIVOD have already become family to our team here at The End, and they are the nicest people to be around. Piggy was a big inspiration to us and his many other fans the world over. We feel lucky for the privilege of getting to work with him and to know him. No words can describe our admiration for him. Piggy's guitar playing was always full of energy and innovation and life. In many senses, he will always be alive through his music.
"We love you, Piggy, and you will always be in our thoughts. May you rest in peace, dear friend.
"Our deepest condolences to his family, friends and bandmates."
