Weedeater touring drummer Carlos Denogean passed away this past Friday, August 24th. A cause of death has not been revealed. The band issued the following statement:
There is no easy way to say this. Our dear friend and bandmate Carlos Denogean passed away yesterday. It is with a heavy heart and intense sadness that we bring you this unfortunate news. He left this world far too soon and will be missed immensely by all of us.
Anyone that knew Carlos was enamored by his kindness and his warm personality. He was an incredibly talented musician and a real joy to be around. He brought something truly special to the band and we all loved working with him.
We simply cannot express how devastated we are by this loss. We don’t know any details at this time and we ask that you please leave us to grieve now along with Carlos’ family. Thank you for all of your kind wishes. Cherish what you have while you have it.
His significant other, Puppie Buffé also commented, saying:
“My heart is broken. My handsome baby is gone and it’s not okay. He didn’t deserve this fate, he wasn’t doing anything wrong. But we’re gonna do right by him and carry on his legacy. I love you Carlos Denogean and I know you’re rockin’ with Lemmy, Dio and the rest of your gang.”
In addition to his work with Weedeater for the last two years, he performed with ASG (2017) and Volture (2014-2018). He was also a member of Salvación, Beard Of Antlers, Murder Earth and Walpyrgus.
