I was sitting at a Halloween party dressed as Alice Cooper just scrolling through my phone when I scrolled past a story that I never wanted to see" Static-X Frontman Wayne Static had passed away.

The air was taken from my lungs and I just kinda froze. I couldn't believe what I was reading after taking it in for a minute. I started to reminisce of past concerts and intro'ing him at Carnival of Chaos.
