Pennywise Bassist Dead

Jason Thirsk, former bassist for the hardcore punk band Pennywise, was found dead at his Hermosa Beach home on July 29 1996, aged 27. He had been battling depression and alcoholism (the reason he was removed from the band.) Somewhat later, All Star Magazine reported that "some sick fans got hold of the suicide photos" and the band was attempting to have them somehow removed from the Internet.
