Former LIZZY BORDEN Guitarist Dies In Head-On Collision

Former LIZZY BORDEN guitarist Alex Nelson died in a head-on collision the afternoon of May 17, 2004. According to publicist Nancy B. Sayle, Alex "joined LIZZY BORDEN, after replacing Tony Matuzak, on guitar before the recording of 'The Murderess Metal Roadshow'. Alex maintained his place in the band and went on to tour with LIZZY all over the world. He loved the music and loved the band, but most of all he loved life.

"Alex will be truly missed by all that had the gift of his friendship. We shall miss him dearly, as he was just starting his new life with his wife Angel Nelson. Recently moving to Palm Springs, the couple had purchased their new home and starting a rental business for the condo they had also purchased. They were living their dream life together only to end in a heartbreaking tragedy.

"This Sunday the band STARWOOD (all LIZZY BORDEN members, including Lizzy) will be performing at the House of Blues on Sunset Strip. They will be performing a few LIZZY BORDEN songs in tribute to their lost brother."
