Former Zimmers Hole guitar player Chris Stanley has passed away. Current Zimmers Hole guitarist Jed Simon delivered the news via a Myspace blog entry:

"We are all deeply saddened at the loss of one of our own, Chris Stanley. Chris is a Zimmers Hole alumni, he played guitar for us during the Legion Of Flames era, and more zany moments occurred when he was around than I care to try and remember. He has had a long battle with the many complications, and the day-to-day life battles with Cystic Fibrosis, pneumonia (many times), a double lung transplant and the myriad of issues that arise with that. He has battled back so many times, and it just crushes our hearts that he couldn't pull through this time."
