Addio a Jason Mackenroth, batterista della Rollins Band dal 1998 al 2004, già membro dei Mother Superior, Mack e Blue Man Group. Il suo amico e compagno proprio nella Rollins Band Marcus Blake lo ricorda così:
Today, I lost a great friend, Jason Mackenroth to prostate cancer. He was an incredible drummer and had the most incredible sense of humor you could ever know. I am in shock. I find it hard right now to put into words my love for him and his friendship. We traveled the world together making music, talking about his favorite band, Kiss, and laughing until our guts hurt. He was not only an amazing drummer but he was an excellent father and husband. Life is too short. Be like Jason. Make someone you know smile like he made me smile. A simple thing like that means so much. I miss you, Jason. Please donate to Jason’s wife, Jaye Mackenroth and her kids on the surviving family’s Gofundme page. Jason’s family needs financial assistance with living expenses so they can remain in Las Vegas until the youngest son, Joren, graduates from high school in June 2016. With the loss of Jason’s income, this is a real challenge.
Mackenroth è morto il 3 gennaio per un tumore alla prostata.
