| We're very sorry to announce that founding member of The DESCENDENTS, and close friend Frank Navetta passed away on October 31, 2008 after becoming ill over the course of a few days. This is obviously a huge loss for the DESCENDENTS family. His contribution to the band, and to music in general can not be overstated. Frank will be truly missed. We will share information about memorial services when we find out. |
This really hits me because since 1986, the Milo Goes To College album has been in every car I have ever driven whether it was tape or cd. This is one of my favorite bands and the songs have always meant a lot to me.
The Descendents have influenced countless bands that have become much more popular than they ever were.
While the Descendents had several lineup changes and eventually became ALL, Frank was a major part in the early formation of the band.
So have a big cup of coffee for Frank today. No news yet on the cause of death but I will post it when I find it.
