Hours ago, we reported that Adrenaline Mob were involved in a fatal accident on their way to St. Petersburg, Florida off Interstate 75 when a tractor-trailer veered and struck a band’s RV. One person in the RV died, but at the time, it was not revealed who it was that passed.
We can now confirm that bassist David Zablidowsky, a.k.a. David Z. Rock was the one who passed away. Former Adrenaline Mob bassist John Moyer confirmed the news:
This talented, humble, sweet soul left us today way too soon. If you saw him perform you were lucky. If you knew him you were blessed. RIP David Z. You were a beast on stage and it was my pleasure to have shared it with you on your last days. Going to miss you brother.
David's brother, Paul, with whom he was in the band Z-Rock, just confirmed it as well:
As you can all imagine, my family and I are devastated by the horrific news of David's passing. A piece of our hearts has been taken from us today and we are figuring out how to deal with this as a family. Please give us time and space to mourn and we will keep you posted when we can. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers.
Update: Mike Portnoy has also confirmed.
