Falling in Reverse Guitarist Derek Jones is Dead at Age 35
Falling in Reverse guitarist Derek Jones has died at only 35 years old. No cause of death has been publicly revealed.
The band’s singer, Ronnie Radke, broke the news yesterday, April 21, via social media, saying:
“I’ll never forget when you picked me up from jail In Your old tour van to start falling in reverse. Your spirit will be interwoven through the music I write forever. Rest In Peace Derek Jones. My heart is broken.”
Ryan Seaman, the band’s drummer from 2011 to 2017, posted:
“RIP Derek Jones. I’m absolutely gutted and can’t even think straight. My condolences to his family, all of our friends that have been affected. All I can do is remember the good times and hope you can too. In your honor I’ll definitely be having Taco Bell tonight. Love you all.”
Jones joined Falling in Reverse in 2010 and has been featured on all four of their albums.
Jones’ fiancé and partner of ten years, Christina Cetta, died of cancer last November. A fundraiser to help cover her costs of treatment netted nearly $50,000.
On behalf of everyone at MetalSucks, we wish Derek’s family, friends and bandmates the best during this tragic time.
