One other founding member of ’90s grunge outfit Screaming Bushes has died. In response to a social media submit made by his brother, Screaming Bushes bassist Van Conner died final evening, aged 55 years outdated.
“Van Conner bassist and tune author of Screaming Bushes died final evening of an prolonged sickness at 55. It was pneumonia that bought him ultimately. He was one of many closest pals I ever had and I liked him immensely. I’ll miss him without end and ever and ever.”
Brothers Van Conner and Gary Lee shaped Screaming Bushes in 1984 with singer Mark Lanegan, who died final yr aged 57. Screaming Bushes had a direct affect on the grunge motion of the ’90s. When Lanegan died, MetalSucks’ former editor Emperor Rhombus wrote that Screaming Bushes helped to develop the “outsider fringe of heavy music whereas its extra mainstream face was within the highlight.”
Along with his work with Screaming Bushes, Conner launched music with Solomon Grundy and Gardener, amongst others. MetalSucks sends our condolences to his household and pals.
