Joey LaCaze

Although earlier reports suggested that the death of Eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze this past weekend may have been due to cancer, it turns out that this was not the case. Vocalist Mike Williams has released the following statement, in which he reveals both the actual cause of death, and how fans can help out LaCaze’s family in the wake of his passing:

“Joseph M. LaCaze, New Orleans native and drummer for EyeHateGod, Mystick Krewe of Clearlight and Outlaw Order passed away on Aug. 23rd in New Orleans after a very successful five week UK and European tour w/ EHG. He also performed ceremonial voodoo drumming and in numerous solo experimental electronic projects. Doctors confirmed to family members the cause as respiratory failure. He also suffered from severe long term asthma.

“An account is set up for the benefit of his daughter Lilith LaCaze. Checks can be made payable to the Lilith LaCaze or Joseph LaCaze donation fund at any Capital One Bank in any city.”
