Original A Life Once Lost Drummer TJ de Blois Passes Away

TJ de Blois has sadly passed away. The musician served as the original drummer for A Life Once Lost, appearing on their debut album “Open Your Mouth for the Speechless… in Case of Those Appointed to Die” and their “The Fourth Plague: Flies“ EP.

Co-founding guitarist Vadim Taver commented:

“I can’t believe I’m writing this just two weeks after losing another friend. I met TJ de Blois at a show in 1998 and decided immediately I need to be in a band with him and we formed A Life Once Lost very briefly after.

We spent countless hours hanging out, going to shows, writing music, playing shows, sitting in a van together. I have so many things I can say about him, but for now I’ll just say that his musical talent was beyond words.

Even at 14, I knew he was someone special and I have really great and fond memories with him. Aside from ALOL, he has made great music with Like Lions, Halfway to Holland, Zolof the R&R Destroyer, Colors, and countless others. Sending much love to his family and kids. You will be missed my friend. 💔”
