Sad news to report as Shane Gibson, who performed as a live guitarist for Korn from 2007-2010, has passed away at the age of 35 from complications due to a blood clotting disorder.
After his stint with Korn, Gibson went on to play with SchwarZenatoR, stOrk and others, also contributing to Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis’s solo album ‘Jonathan Davis and the SFA.’
Memorials are being left on Gibson’s personal Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Mr.Stork).
stOrk released the following statement: It is with deepest sadness and regret that we must confirm that stOrk founding member and lead guitarist Shane Paul Gibson passed away at 5:45 AM on April 15th, 2014 in the UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama as a result of complications from a blood clotting disorder. He was 35 years old. He was one of the best guitar players the world has ever known and his virtuosity was matched only by his wit and generosity of spirit. He will be missed beyond measure.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and all those who loved him as much as we did.
