Lacuna Coil's vocalist Cristina Scabbia announced today that former bandmate and guitarist Claudio Leo, who played with the band from 1995-1998 (including a performance on the band's demo under the moniker Ethereal and the 1998 self-titled EP) has passed away. The cause of death was not disclosed and no other information was offered so far.
The following announcement was issued on Scabbia's official Facebook page: "It's with deep sadness that I inform you all know that our dear friend and ex guitar player Claudio Leo left us. My deepest condolences to his family, close friends and the band Cayne. You will always be remembered for your strenght and positivity. We love you, Claudio."
Claudio Leo was also the founding member of the gothic rock act Cayne in 1999, who also released this message: "Goodbye Claudio. Rest in peace, brother."
