Tribute Video From Reed Mullin’s (Corrosion Of Conformity) Memorial Posted Online

Family and friends recently honored late Corrosion Of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin during a memorial at The Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina on February 9. You can watch a video tribute that was shared during that event below:

Corrosion Of Conformity Share New Tribute For Late Drummer Reed Mullin

Corrosion Of Conformity have posted a new tribute for Reed Mullin. As previously reported, the drummer recently passed away at the age of 53.

Corrosion Of Conformity said the following:

“A badass drummer:

Reed could play all of the metal stuff, cymbal grabs, proto blast beats with only one bass pedal. He could cop one hundred different styles and reference them in his own way. Everything from Earl Hudson and Clive Burr to Neil Peart (RIP) to Mitch Mitchell and Bill Ward. From John Bonham to Phil Taylor and Nicko McBrain.

All the while he was creating his own thing, odd times and polyrhythms played nonchalantly, powerful, simple, deliberate sections, all of the possibilities were in fact possible but utilized thoughtfully, in the proper place, for the proper effect, as the song demanded. Musically speaking, what more could you ask for?”

Corrosion Of Conformity Drummer Reed Mullin Passes Away

Corrosion Of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin has sadly passed away at the age of 53. The band commented:

“Reed, It’s with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a friend, a brother and pioneer. Love and condolences to the family, friends and fans who will miss you and thanks for the music”
