ITP V.016 ONLY ONE PER COFFIN: R.I.P. STUART ROSE (FORMER DRUMMER-PENTAGRAM)
PENTAGRAM have sadly announced former drummer STUART ROSE (with PENTAGRAM 1983-1988) has passed away. No other details regarding STUART ROSE'S cause of death are available.
PENTAGRAM unleashed "CURIOUS VOLUME", 8/28/2015 via PEACEVILLE RECORDS.
We're saddened to learn of the passing of Stuart Rose...drummer for Pentagram in the mid ‘80s. Stuart came on board in the midst of the name change from Death Row to Pentagram in 1984. His one full-length release with the band was the 1987 album “Day of Reckoning”, which would eventually become monumental in regards to the history and evolution of “doom metal”. Stuart was really happy to have both audio and visual of his playing finally surface properly on the Pentagram dvd collection “All Your Sins” in 2015. Among the cherished footage is his '84 performance with the band at the historic CBGBs in NYC. Stuart was a talented drummer, a clever and funny guy, and he will be missed. We offer our utmost condolences and prayers to his family during this time. Godspeed.
