Sebastian Bach's former tour drummer has died in Florida. 

Mark "Bam Bam" McConnell's family says in a Facebook post that the drummer died yesterday morning at a hospital in Florida with his family and friends by his side. They're still reeling from the loss and say that they will post more information once that they've had a chance to "catch our breaths".

Bam Bam was suffering from liver and kidney problems recently and just this past week his organs had begun to shut down and he went into a coma. Sebstian Bach posted on his Facebook page that Mark "wasn't doing well". He went on to sing his praises calling him "an amazing drummer" and a "life long friend". He says that only a miracle could have saved him and he was hoping for one, but, alas it was not to be.

You can hear his mastery on the album Bring 'Em Back Alive. Mark, you will be missed.
