Lynch Mob end show when crowd member/guitarist Jeff Windisch collapses and sadly dies
Lynch Mob were scheduled to play a show at Neisen’s in Savage, Minnesota, USA yesterday (Saturday, August 13, 2016) evening but ended up cutting their set short when an audience member and Emperors And Elephants guitarist Jeff Windisch reportedly suffered cardiac arrest and sadly ended up passing away.
Emperors And Elephants were one of the opening acts that played prior to Lynch Mob taking the stage.
Lynch Mob bassist Sean McNabb has issued a statement on behalf of Lynch Mob (which also includes guitarist George Lynch, singer Oni Logan and drummer Jimmy D’Anda) via his Facebook page, which states:
“On behalf of Lynch Mob –George, Oni Logan Jimmy D’Anda & myself our prayers go out to Jeff Windisch‘s family, friends & band Emperors and Elephants. Jeff died of cardiac arrest last night during our set.
They opened the show for us and kicked ass. As soon as we were alerted to the situation we stopped playing, as the crowd and band stood in disbelief as they tried to save him. We felt it was best to stop the show at that point. Please keep his family in your prayers.
Sleaze Roxx contributor Metal Headz Media was on hand for the concert on Saturday, August 13, 2016 so stay tuned for a concert review which will include Emperors And Elephants‘ set that night.
