Petition launched to include Trevor Strnad in Grammys 'In Memoriam' segment

Sign this shit.

Trevor Strnad

In the wake of The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad's passing, a new Change.org petition has been launched to include Strnad in the Grammy Awards "In Memoriam" segment.

Created by journalist, musician, and artist manager, Bradley Zorgdrager, the petition doesn't beat around the bush:

"The Grammy Awards have a longstanding blindspot for metal, recently snubbing influential metal figures Joey Jordison (Slipknot) and Jon Zazula (Megaforce Records) from their In Memoriam segment.

"The metal community just lost a hugely influential and universally loved member, Trevor Strnad, best known as vocalist of The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as for his encyclopedic knowledge of metal and fun-loving, kind spirit.

"Grammy producer Ken Winston apologized for leaving people out, and we as a metal community demand — nay, kindly ask as he would want us to — Trevor Strnad's inclusion in next year's ceremony."

Since the Grammys couldn't even be bothered to Slayer's Jeff Hanneman or Pantera's Vinnie Paul, the petition's prospects appear grim, but we'll hope for the best.
