What a sad news day it is today. We first wrote about the sad passing of Michael Clarke Duncan, and we have another R.I.P. post to follow. Mark Abrahamian, guitarist for the band Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, died after performing at a concert in Norfolk, Nebraska. He passed away on Sunday and his bandmates announced the news on Twitter, yesterday, in a message that read, “We are shocked and saddened at the sudden loss of our guitar player, Mark Abrahamian. We will miss you, brother. Rest in peace, Mark.” A note and the photograph you see above was also released on Facebook, reading, “We are all shocked and saddened at the sudden loss of our guitar player Mark Abrahamian. Mark was a kind, thoughtful and innovative soul. He was also a friend and family member. Mark also happened to be one hell of a guitar player. We are devastated by the loss of our brother and just dealing with it the best we can.” So far we have no updates of what happened and are waiting to hear more. Abrahamian was only 46-years-old and and had a pretty amazing career playing for bands like Survivor, Toto, Loverboy and ACDC. Our sincere condolences to all his family, friends and bandmates.
