Falling In Reverse guitarist Derek Jones dead at 35

Posted by on April 21, 2020


We are saddened to hear about the passing of Falling In Reverse guitarist Derek Jones. A cause of death has yet to be revealed. He was 35 years old.

Vocalist Ronnie Radke issued the following message:

“I’ll never forget when you picked me up from jail In Your old tour van to start falling in reverse. Your spirit will be interwoven through the music I write forever. Rest In Peace Derek Jones. My heart is broken.”


Jones has been with the group since the Las Vegas post-hardcore outfit’s debut album 2011’s The Drug in Me Is You up until their latest effort, 2017’s Coming Home. This past fall, Falling In Reverse were forced to cancel their tour due to health related issues concerning Jones’ fiance, Christina Cetta. A GoFundMe page was launched back in March 2019, and sadly by November 2019, based on an update on Gofundme, Cetta lost her battle with cancer. As tragic as 2020 has been, we hope Derek has somehow found a way to be reunited with his lost love.


Our thoughts and condolences go out to Jones’ family during this sad time.
