Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: No Use For A Name’s Tony Sly
No Use for a Name frontman Tony Sly has passed away at the age of 41. Sly fronted the beloved punk-rock act from 1989 until his death on July 31.
Featured on all nine No Use For A Name albums, Tony Sly possessed a perfect SoCal punk rock voice, which cemented No Use as underground heroes.
Bandmate Matt Riddle posted a casual, yet heart-wrenching statement about his friend. "I’m not sure of all the details yet, and i don’t think that’s really important. what’s important is i lost a great friend and you lost a great songwriter. i’ve been playing with him for 15 years? 16? i haven’t processed it yet. i’ve been on the phone all day with friends and family. i’m not looking forward to it sinking in. i’m worried sick for his wife and kids. i knew tony very well and he would definitely want to thank you for all the love and support for both No Use and his solo career."
