Staind fans, brace your­selves. Found­ing drum­mer Jon Wysoc­ki passed away on May 18th at 53. The news broke on Lydi­a’s Castle’s Insta­gram (his cur­rent band).

Staind’s Rise to Fame

Back in 1995, Wysoc­ki (West­field, MA native) co-found­ed Staind with Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushok, and John­ny April. Their 1997 debut, “Tor­ment­ed,” set the stage, but it was 1999’s “Dys­func­tion” (co-pro­duced by Limp Bizk­it’s Fred Durst) that launched them into the mainstream.

Staind Split and Beyond

Wysoc­ki left Staind in 2011 due to report­ed ten­sion with Lewis. He joined Soil for a short stint but nev­er record­ed with them. Despite the fric­tion, Lewis hon­ored Wysoc­ki, say­ing his world “has changed.” Soil also paid trib­ute, remem­ber­ing him as a “great friend, drum­mer, and human being.”

A Look Back and What We Don’t Know Yet

The cause of Wysock­i’s death remains unknown. A band­mate men­tioned “liv­er issues” requir­ing ICU care on Face­book. The rock com­mu­ni­ty mourns the loss of this excep­tion­al drum­mer and kind soul. Trib­utes high­light his impres­sive skills and warm personality.
