Rocker We’ve Lost in 2012: Lethal’s Eric Cook

Lethal-Eric Cook

Eric Cook, co-founder and guitarist for the Kentucky-based metal band Lethal lost his battle with cancer on Aug. 23, causing despair for fans of the former Metal Blade Records act.

After splitting up in 1996, Lethal reformed to play select festivals in 2007 and 2008.

‘Keep it True’ festival organizer Oliver Weinsheimer remembered Cook, while hoping to dedicate the 2014 edition of the festival to the guitarist. “Eric was one of the nicest musicians I ever worked with and a real gentleman. The whole next Keep it True will be dedicated to his honor and we will try to arrange a final farewell/tribute Lethal show for Keep it True 2014. This is something he deserves for all the beautiful music and joy he gave to us. The whole Keep it True family sends their condolences to his family, friends, and his band members, who all go through dark times right now.”
