SACRED REICH: der frühere Gitarrist Jason Rainey, starb am Montagabend!
Der frühere Gitarrist von SACRED REICH, Jason Rainey, starb am Montagabend (16. März) mit 53 Jahren an einem Herzinfarkt. Sein Tod wurde von seiner Frau Renee Novak bestätigt, die auf Facebook schrieb: "My husband Jason Rainey passed away a hour ago. Most likely a heat [sic] attack. They worked on him for a half hour but they couldn't save him.".
SACRED REICH trennte sich im Februar 2019 von Rainey und ersetzte ihn durch Joey Radziwill. Frontmann Phil Rind erzählte Sonic Perspectives später über den Ausstieg des Gitarristen aus der Band: "Unfortunately, Jason just physically… There's some stuff going on with him. He just wasn't going to be able to do it. We tried everything we could. We all tried. It just became apparent he wasn't going to be able to be up to it and come through for us. It's really sad. It's a real heartbreaking thing. Jason started the band. He and I did so much together, and I'm probably closer to him than anybody else on the whole planet. When it became apparent, I cried for two days straight. It was heartbreaking. We had to do what we needed to do. The band needs to keep going. We were really lucky to have Joey. It was very last minute, right up until the end, right when we went into the studio we were pulling for Jason: 'Come on!' It was the first day in the studio it became apparent it wasn't going to work."
