Former He Is Legend and Bloodjinn guitarist McKenzie Bell has sadly passed away. Bloodjinn broke the news on Facebook, writing:

We are extremely saddened today to find out that our great friend and former guitarist, Mckenzie Bell, has passed away. He was always a blast to hang out with and one incredible riff writer. He was the king of all of the hot sauces. Seriously, his collection was insane. He was largely involved in our ‘This Machine Runs On Empty’ recording process, along with @machinejk76. He even had a great singing voice and will forever be heard on “Moment Of Clarity”. Rest in power brother. You were loved dearly by everyone.

No cause of death has been revealed at this time, but as The PRP points out, Bell was involved in a serious accident years ago, and he had been documenting his road to recovery on Instagram prior to his passing.

McKenzie played on He Is Legend's first two albums, 2004's I Am Hollywood and 2006's Suck Out the Poison, before playing on Bloodjinn's third and final album, 2007's This Machine Runs on Empty.

Rest in peace, McKenzie.
