Tony Sly, the frontman for Northern California-based punk rock band No Use for a Name, has died of as yet undisclosed causes. He was 41.
“It is with great sorrow that we must say goodbye to Tony Sly of No Use For A Name,” a statement on their record label’s website reads.
“We received a call earlier today of his passing, and are devastated.”
“We have lost an incredible talent, friend, and father – one of the true greats.
“[Producer] Fat Mike had this to say: ‘One of my dearest friends and favorite song writers has gone way too soon. Tony, you will be greatly missed.’”
Tony Sly joined the band in 1989, replacing founding member John Meyer (no relation to John Mayer), and they released Incognito in 1990.
No Use broke through into mainstream with “Soulmate,” off of 1993′s Leche Con Carne and were on several Warped Tour lineups in the ’90s.
