Tony Sly, frontman for the punk rock band No Use for A Name, has died. He was 41.
A spokesman for Fat Wreck Chords, the record label that handles Sly, confirmed the death of the singer and guitarist last Wednesday.
The label’s website also reads a statement confirming Sly’s passing: “It is with great sorrow that we must say goodbye to Tony Sly of No Use for A Name. 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.”
They did not, however, provide any details on the cause of the singer’s death. The Santa Clara County Medical Examiners Office is still conducting investigations, according to an official from the agency.
The investigator also commented: “It appears to be a natural death, but the body hasn’t been examined at this time.”
Sly became part of No Use for A Name since 1989, when he was only 18 and the band was only two years old. The group, which was based in San Jose, California, gathered minor mainstream success. Eventually, members came and went, including Sly, who chose to focus on his own acoustic career. However, the group had reunited in 2010 and has been working on a new studio album since.
