DESCENDENTS Gründungsmitglied Frank Navetta ist am Freitag verstorben. Lest was die restlichen Gründungsmitglieder Tony Lombardo und Bill Stevenson zu dieser schrecklichen Meldung zu sagen haben:
"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."
