    A.J. Pero Of Twisted Sister Passes Away

    Along with Mark Pocaro and Andy Fraser this week, AJ Pero, the long-time drummer for Twisted Sister, has passed-away:

    Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French has reported that drummer A.J. Pero has passed away. The cause of death is not yet known.

    On his Facebook Page, French reported: "The members of Twisted Sister are profoundly saddened to announce the untimely passing of our brother, A.J. Pero.

    "The band, crew and most importantly the family of A.J. Pero thank you for your thoughts and prayers at this time."

    Pero played with Twisted Sister from 1982-1986, 1997-1998 and 2003-present, having appeared on all but one release ("Love Is For Suckers," 1987). He also appeared on the classic Cities album from 1986 - "Annihilation Absolute." In addition, Pero has performed on the latest two Adrenaline Mob releases: "Men of Honor" (2014) and this year's EP "Dearly Departed."

    More information on his untimely death is expected soon.

    Passed away in is sleep on a tour bus at 55. That's way too young. I wonder if he had some kind of undiagnosed heart condition or something.

    I'd guess a heart attack, too. 55 is well within the range where that sort of thing starts happening. Frankly, I'm surprised more of our heroes haven't had severe heart troubles, given life on the road and all...

    RIP to a legend. One of the best live shows I've ever seen.

    That's too damned young. RIP.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...
