Black Tusk Announce Public Memorial Service for Jonathan Athon


Jonathan AthonBlack Tusk have announced a memorial service, which will open to the public, in honor of bassist/vocalist Jonathan Athon. Athon was tragically killed this past weekend in a motorcycle accident at the age of 32.

Details of the service, per the band’s Facebook page, are as follows:

“We will be gathering from 4-8pm this Saturday, Nov. 15th in Franklin Square (across from Vinnies and Ghosttown Tattoo) to remember Athon. This is for fans and family and friends and anyone who ever crossed paths with Athon or shared a conversation with him. Ghosttown will be doing memorial tattoos during this time period, with proceeds going to offset medical costs. Afterwards at 8pm, close friends and Family will gather at the Jinx for a private memorial. After a few hours, we will open the Jinx to the public. A memorial fund is being set up, with donations going to help pay for the ongoing medical costs for Emily Boutwell, Jason Statts and Keith Kozel, as all of Athons medical expenses have already been taken care of. More information about that when it becomes available.”

The band also posted these photos of memorial tattoos done at Savannah’s Ghost Town Tattoo:Athon Memorial TattoosOur thoughts continue to be with Athon’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. If any MetalSuckers live in the Savannah, we encourage you to attend the memorial service and show your support.
