Alt-metal musician Wayne Static has died at 48. The news was confirmed by admins on Static's Facebook
page on yesterday (Nov. 1). No official cause of death has been given, but some rumors
indicate drugs may have been involved.
Static (whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells) formed the band Static-X in 1994. The group went on to achieve platinum-selling success with their 1999 debut album Wisconsin Death Trip
. Songs from the album, including "Push It" and "Bled For Days", became staples on MTV as well as hard rock and alternative radio stations throughout 2000 and 2001. Static-X recorded five more albums before their final release in 2009.
Wayne Static went on to tour sporadically with different versions of the Static-X line-up while also pursuing a solo career. He was scheduled to begin a solo tour co-headlining with Powerman 5000 and Drowning Pool in January of next year.
