Deez Nuts, ex-I Killed The Prom Queen bassist Sean Kennedy dies
Sean Kennedy, bassist of Deez Nuts and former bass player of Australian metalcore outfit I Killed The Prom Queen, passed away yesterday (February 23) at the age of 35. A cause of death has yet to be revealed. In addition to playing with Deez Nuts for roughly eight years and appearing on their three most recent albums, Kennedy was also member of IKTPQ from 2003 through 2013 and performed on the band's first two full-length albums, 2003's When Goodbye Means Forever... and 2006's Music for the Recently Deceased. Ex-I Killed The Prom Queen vocalist Michael Crafter had the following to say:
"For years we stood side by side on stage or in band photos. We slept on floors, in vans, planes and some how managed to tour the world. Time went way to fast. We experienced highs and lows on the road and after all we went through, you will always be my friend. As the years passed us by I'm glad we've always been there for each other. When I called you last week I didn't think it would be the last. I wish I could say goodbye. Love and will always miss you mate. Rest In Peace."
