Nothing much is known about the apparent death of Reed Mullin at the age of 53. The band, however, has posted this on Twitter.
It’s with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a friend, a brother and pioneer. Reed you are loved and always will be. Lets all take a moment… pic.twitter.com/33HKp9tU7v— C.O.C. (@coccabal) January 28, 2020
Mullin was with the band between 1982 and 2001 as a co-founder (he left due to a back injury) and then joined the group again from 2010 until now.
Hints of his death came earlier today (January 27) when a number of musicians friends posted the news on social media.
No cause of death has been revealed as of yet.
