Sad news in the NYHC community: veteran drummer Vinnie Value (who played in Warzone, Kill Your Idols, No Redeeming Social Value, Grey Area, and other bands) has passed away. No cause of death has been revealed at this time, but Vinnie had been struggling with a spinal condition before his untimely passing. He’s survived by his wife and two children.

Kill Your Idols broke the sad news on Facebook, writing:

Vinnie was loved. We loved him, and he was beloved anywhere we went. Vinnie loved people, too. And his light was spread all over the world in his music and his travels with NRSV, Warzone, Grey Area, KYI, SSSP, and more. Vinnie had a large personality, the only drummer we ever knew that was also a frontman from behind the drums. We’ll never forget him. Vinnie was also a husband and father.. please pray or send PMA in the direction of his family. And thank you to everyone who has expressed your condolences. Rest In Peace, brother Vinnie Value❤️

Tributes have also already come in from Shutdown, Combust, and more.

Rest in peace, Vinnie. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
