Sad news has come out as former Korn touring guitarist Shane Gibson has passed away at age 35 due to complications from a blood clotting disorder. Gibson was the band’s touring guitarist from 2007 through 2010 and has since played in various projects, including Jonathan Davis’ solo album Jonathan Davis And The SFA.
More recently, Gibson was a part of the hard rock band stOrk, who posted the following message on their Facebook wall:
It is with deepest sadness and regret that we must confirm that stOrk founding member and lead guitarist Shane Paul Gibson passed away at 5:45 AM on April 15th, 2014 in the UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama as a result of complications from a blood clotting disorder. He was 35 years old. He was one of the best guitar players the world has ever known and his virtuosity was matched only by his wit and generosity of spirit. He will be missed beyond measure.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and all those who loved him as much as we did.
We would like to add our condolences to the friends and family of Gibson. Rest in peace.
