Former BulletBoys drummer Robby Karras has passed away, according to a brief statement released by vocalist Marq Torien.
Karras jammed on the hard rockers' Acid Monkey album back in '95.
“Today is a sad day," Torien said. "My brother Robby just passed away. Thank you, bro, for being in my life and sharing all your amazing drumming and musical skills with me. You were such a loving and awesome man. We worked hard and played hard on Acid Monkey. I will never forget everything you did for me. I will miss you bad, my friend. I know you’re in heaven because we both prayed together for that to happen for you. Please know I will always keep playing and writing music, like you made me promise you. God bless you and your family.”
No other details about the death have been confirmed, although it’s thought Karras had been ill for some time.
