KILLERS SAXOPHONIST COMMITS SUICIDE

4/27/2012

Tommy Marth, saxophone player for the Killers, took his own life earlier this week in Las Vegas, according to E! Online. The county coroner's office confirmed that the 33-year-old Marth's body was found in his home on Monday morning (April 23rd), with the cause of death officially ruled a suicide. Marth was survived by his parents and two siblings. A statement from the Killers at the band's Facebook and Twitter pages read, "Last night we lost our friend Thomas Marth. Our prayers are with his family.There's a light missing in Las Vegas tonight. Travel well, Tommy."

 

  • Marth first began working with the Killers in 2005, playing on the band's second and third albums, Sam's Town and Day And Age. He became part of the group's touring lineup in 2008.
  • The Killers went on an extended break in 2010, although they've surfaced for live shows and various members of the band have issued solo projects.
  • The group did enter the studio this year to begin working on its fourth album, although there's been no news yet on a title or release date.

He must have had demons that he could not deal with in his life. I pray for his family and friends to realise that this is not a reflection on them and that the good memories will last forever. Tommy, RIP."
