Scott Clendenin (ex-Death) Passes Away

Former Death bassist, Scott Clendenin, has passed away at age 47. No cause of death was specified, but he has been facing “health challenges.”


Death’s former manager, Eric Greif, posted the following on the band’s Facebook:

“With a sense of shock I’m letting all of you know of the passing today of former DEATH bassist Scott Clendenin. Scott had some health challenges in the last few years but was optimistic about his prospects. Of course he was the skilled player on The Sound of Perseverance DEATH album, and recently participated in two DTA live runs, in 2012 and 2013, including the highlight of his acoustic guitar in a poignant rendition of Voice of the Soul. Our thoughts go out to Scott‘s family at this difficult time. ERIC“

R.I.P. Scott Clendenin

Sean Reinert Exits Current Death (DTA) Tour

Sean Reinert has dropped off the current Death (DTA) Tour, due to health reasons. In his absence, Gene Hoglan (ex-Death, Testament etc.) will be taking over drumming duties.


Reinert issued the following statement, via Facebook:

“Hey guys,

I was going to issue this statement today but it looks like the cat’s already been let out of the bag and people are drawing some crazy conclusions. So let me address what is going on with the tour change.

Yes, it is with great regret that I left the DTA tour after the San Francisco show Sunday night. Although I have spent weeks rehearsing for this tour and was very excited to put on great performances, it was not meant to be. For the past six months I have been suffering from lower back spasms, extreme muscle fatigue and limited grip strength. It’s no big secret that after over the last two years and two major surgeries (full achilles repair on my right ankle and a year later knee surgery on my left knee for a torn MCL) that I’ve gained a lot of weight due to recovery and pain. All of this culminated in the perfect storm.

I realized that the situation was not getting better the more I played. Shortening the set was not something that I felt was fair to the fans and after three shows I realized the best thing for the tour was to get Gene in the fold and for me to get some definitive answers. Fortunately, Gene is available to take over for me starting tonight in Seattle. He is of course a f*‪#‎king‬ beast behind the kit and there’s no one better to fill in for me. I have already consulted with my Physician and will have a series of tests over the next few weeks to check for for everything from carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome to other possible nerve/spinal/back issues. I am sorry to the many fans who were looking forward to seeing me play this tour and I hope to make it up to you in the future.
