Scott Clendenin, a member of Death's final lineup, has passed away at age 47. Clendenin was the bassist for Death from 1996 until 2001, which is when founder Chuck Schuldiner died and the band ended. Clendenin was also once a member of Schuldiner's other band, Control Denied. Former Death manager Eric Greif broke the news:
"With a sense of shock, I'm letting all of you know of the passing today of former DEATH bassist Scott Clendenin. Scott had some health challenges in the last few years but was optimistic about his prospects. Of course he was the skilled player on 'The Sound Of Perseverance' DEATH album, and recently participated in two DTA [Death To All] live runs, in 2012 and 2013, including the highlight of his acoustic guitar in a poignant rendition of 'Voice Of The Soul'. Our thoughts go out to Scott's family at this difficult time."
