Scott Columbus – Rest In Peace

SCOTT COLUMBUS – Numerous reports have been made, from credible sources such as the official website for MANOWAR, stating the sad news of Scott Columbus (ex-member/drummer for MANOWAR) passing away on Monday, April 4th, 2011. Scott Columbus was 54 years old. Metal Odyssey extends condolences to the family, friends, ex-band mates and fans of Scott Columbus.

As it is stated on the official website of MANOWAR:

“It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our brother Scott Columbus. Scott Columbus was a rare talent and equally a rare individual. He was a father, a friend and a brother of metal. All of the great moments we spent together in the studio, in our homes and on the road are burnished in our hearts and memories forever. These words are spoken with heavy hearts but we have the comfort of knowing that he is in a good place and at peace. He will never be forgotten. Your family and brothers, Joey, Eric, Karl, Donnie and all at Magic Circle Music”.

My thoughts are: As the past few years (and time) have proven, our Rock, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal heros can never be taken for granted. I am shocked at this news of Scott Columbus passing away and certainly I am not alone. Such a talented drummer that I and countless fans worldwide enjoyed listening to and watching. May Scott Columbus rest in peace.  – Stone

    RIP Scott, I saw you back in 86 and you rocked!
