RIP: John Kronus

Earlier today, thirty-eight-year-old John Kronus, most famous for being one half of The Eliminators (with Perry Saturn), was found dead in his New Hampshire-based apartment. No cause has been given.

Kronus had been out of the mainstream for years, but was recovering from recent surgery on his knee, and was expecting to take bookings in September.

The last thing I want to do is start unfounded rumors, but I feel I need to point out something. I'd very recently heard from Kronus on several occasions (after not hearing from him in a long time) and had discussed with a colleague how Kronus seemed to not be himself. I have no idea if that feeling played a role in his death, but felt it was significant to mention.

I'll keep you abreast of any new developments.

In the meantime, I'd like to offer condolences to Kronus' family and close friends.
