It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our brother Wayne Swinny. Wayne passed away this afternoon from a spontaneous brain hemorrhage while we were out on tour…Wayne will be missed by all those who knew him.”

He also described Swinny as someone who would always go out of his way to make sure everyone was having a good time.

I’m not even sure what to think or how to feel right now. My heart aches for Wayne’s family, his friends, and anyone who had the joy of being around him. My heart aches for his daughter Nikki. He loved that little girl so much.

He was the older brother I never had. I learned so much from him and we had a f****** blast together! I will cherish it all for the rest of my life!”

Wayne co-founded the group, known for their blend of rock and hip-hop, in 1996 alongside singer Josey Scott, guitarist Chris Dabaldo, bassist Dave Novotny and drummer Paul Crosby. Regardless, his contributions to the music industry will forever be remembered. RIP.
