Unfortunately we have some sad news to report today. Yesterday former Obituary bassist, and recent Gorgoroth member, Frank Watkins, passed away at the young age of 47 due to cancer. Frank joined Obituary back in 1989, and was a huge part of the band’s early success. He was there until they split in 1997, took part in their reunion years later, and stayed a member until 2010. More recently, Frank was “Bøddel” in Gorgoroth, so as you came imagine, many in the the metal world were devastated by the news. Many of our biggest names sent out their support to the Watkins family online, and you can see some of the examples of love below. On behalf of everyone at SkullsNBones, we would like to send our thoughts out to his family and friends. RIP Frank, and thank you.
