Derek Jones, the guitarist for punk-pop band Falling in Reverse and one of the founding members, has passed away at the age of 35.
His cause of death has not been confirmed, but his bandmate, lead vocalist Ronnie Radke, confirmed the news on his Instagram account.
“I’ll never forget when you picked me up from jail in your old tour van to start falling in reverse,” Ronnie posted on Instagram. “Your spirit will be interwoven through the music I write forever. Rest In Peace Derek Jones. My heart is broken.”
The band released four albums over their time together including their debut, The Drug in Me Is You.
Derek‘s fiancee Cristina Cetta died in November of cancer.
