Wayne Swinny, co-founder and guitarist of the American rock band Saliva, has died at the age of 59, the group’s members announced on social media. The cause of death was a “sudden brain hemorrhage” that the musician suffered while on tour.

On Wednesday, March 22, the band Saliva announced on their Facebook profile that the day before, when the group was on tour and preparing for a concert in Pittsburgh, Swinny suffered “health problems” and was hospitalized. There he was diagnosed with a “sudden brain haemorrhage” and transferred to the intensive care unit.

A few hours later, another entry appeared on Saliva’s profile. It reported that Swinny, 59, had died. “Funeral details will be announced soon. Everyone who knew Wayne will miss him. We love you Wayne,” the post read.

Bobby Amaru, the band’s frontman and vocalist, was quoted by TMZ as saying that he’s “not even sure what to think or feel” at the moment. My heart goes out to Wayne’s family, his friends, everyone who had the pleasure of being in his circle, and especially his daughter Nikki. He loved that little girl so much… He would do anything in his power to make sure she was okay. I’m grateful to have been able to spend almost 12 years of my life with Wayne, on stage and most importantly offstage,” said Amaru.
