Since Wayne Static’s sudden death, many in the metal community have shared their condolences and memories of the Static-X frontman, as well as even his former bandmates. Now Static’s widow, Tera Wray, has spoken out about her late husband.
Wray, who had a massive presence in Static-X’s later work and Wayne’s solo material since the two married in 2008, issued the following statement:
“I would like to thank everyone on behalf of all the Wayne’s family and myself for all the kind words from all of Wayne’s friends and fans and other bands. Wayne went very peacefully in his sleep and probably didn’t even know that it happened (Which makes me feel better that he wasn’t in pain). It will be sometime before we know why it happened but I will keep everyone informed. He had so much more to give the world. As his wife, biggest fan, and worshipper, I will keep him alive and finish everything that I can that he has been working on. He will never die and I want to share everything that I can that he has to give to his fans and friends. I will try my hardest to be strong and make him proud.”
Wray’s comment reflect a similar statement made clarifying that while the cause of death remains unknown, it was not drug related. As Wray also notes, it may still be sometime before we find out what actually lead to Static’s death. We’ll continue to bring you further updates as they come.
