Cradle of Filth’s bassist Jon Kennedy died after a car crash, frontman Dani Filth revealed on Facebook. He was 44 years old.

“It is with much sadness that we hear about the untimely passing of our former bassist Jon Kennedy. He was a great bassist and singer who filled in for Cradle at a time of such magical import, mayhem and mischief,” Filth wrote in his statement. “I distinctly remember having a wickedly wonderful week staying just outside Wrexham in Wales at Jon’s Mum’s house in 1995. We picked our own magic mushrooms from a local football pitch and then watched Emperor synch up with the newly-released Disney Aladdin on VHS, heading out to undertake Black Metal shenanigans thereafter. We were always pulling pranks and playfully winding each other up back in those days.”

He concluded, “He will be missed! Godspeed old friend.”

Kennedy was driving on the A55, near Broughton, when he was killed, according to Daily Mail.

The devastating news comes just two months after the band’s early guitarist Stuart Anstis. Jon had played bass for metal band Cradle of Filth in 1994. He was with the band for around a year before moving onto other projects.
