Long-time Forbidden guitarist Craig Locicero issued the following statement:
"Beyond sorrow. We just found out Tim Calvert has passed. Some have known he was battling an aggressive form of ALS for a while now. It was all very private as per his wishes. The greatest songwriter, musician and guitarist I have ever had the pleasure or creating music with has left the building. Tim's genius will live on forever in the three Forbidden records he helped create with us. Rest in Peace, Tim."
