Last night, we reported that McKenzie Bell of He Is Legend and Bloodjinn passed away at the age of 35. No cause of death had yet been revealed.
His former band, He Is Legend chimed in this morning with this tribute:
"Learning of McKenzie Bell's passing has left us all with heavy hearts. He truly was a one of a kind person. We spent many years cutting our teeth playing together in different bands at local spots here in Wilmington, in the practice room, in a tour van across the entire country. We know that he touched many people's lives in the 35 years he was with us on this planet, and everyone's memories of him will live on forever. Our hearts go out to his friends and family, especially his loving mother. He had a very long, hard road to go down after his accident. We're hoping you finally have some peace, McKenzie. Pour it out, boys."
Bell played on the first two albums from He Is Legend, 2004’s I Am Hollywood and 2006’s Suck Out the Poison, before joining Bloodjinn to perform on 2007's This Machine Runs on Empty.
Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
