Scott Columbus passed away

Sad news has surfaced in the metal world, unfortunately.   Ex-Manowar drummer Scott Columbus died this past Monday at the age of 54.

With the exception of  ‘Battle Hymns,Scott Columbus drummed on every single Manowar album in the 80s.  Scott left the band in 1990 but rejoined six years later to record the next three Manowar albums.  He left in 2008 due to creative differences with bassist Joey DeMaio.

Manowar also just released a statement on their official website:

“With great sorrow we announce the passing of our brother Scott. A rare talent, equally a rare individual, a father, friend and a brother of metal  All the great moments we spent together are burnished in our hearts and memories forever. We know he is in a good place and at peace. He will never be forgotten.”

Scott was a talented drummer, no question about it. He will be missed in the metal world.  We at Dose Of Metal give our condolences.
