American Head Charge lost their beloved guitarist Bryan Ottoson in the middle of a 2005 tour with Mudvayne. The band found Ottoson dead lying on a sleeping bunk on the group’s tour bus.

Ottoson’s cause of death was ruled as an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. The 27-year-old shredder had been dealing with strep throat on the road and was prescribed penicillin and an unnamed pain medication. Police documents indicated that Ottoson has consumed “a large amount of alcohol at a bar” shortly before his death, but the “large amount” claim was quickly refuted by the band.
