Hier das Statement der Band:
It is with overwhelming sadness that we bid farewell to our drummer and dearest friend Gerhardt (Jerry) Fuchs. Jerry died in a tragic accident early this morning (Sunday, November 08, 2009) when he fell down an elevator shaft near his home in Brooklyn, NY. We are humbled to have been able to create music with you for all these years, Jerry. You will be missed more than words can express. We love you, bro.
