As first reported by Metal Sludge, former BulletBoys drummer Johnny Giosa was killed in a car accident yesterday in Los Angeles. Though the identity of the victim was not revealed by the original news source, BulletBoys confirmed the death of Giosa by posting the following message via Facebook:
“I post this message with a heavy heavy heart…Words can not express how devastated I am to hear about my friends passing, Mr. Johnny G. My sincerest condolences to his family and the ones he loved. We’re all going to miss you brother! RIP….Skinnard!!”
In addition to drumming, Giosa (or better known as Johnny G) was also heavily involved with acting, modeling, and hair styling. And though he had played with numerous bands while in Philadelphia and L.A., he is most known for his recent time on the road with BulletBoys. Our condolences go out to Giosa’s family and friends.
