Bolt Thrower‘s drummer, Martin “Kiddie” Kearns has passed away unexpectedly at the age of 38.

Bolt Thrower have issued the following statement;

With the heaviest of hearts, and still numb from shock, we have to share the very sad news that on Monday 14th September Bolt Thrower lost our powerhouse drummer, Martin ‘Kiddie’ Kearns.

After the first rehearsal for our upcoming tour of Australia, Kiddie suddenly felt unwell which continued throughout the night, and the next day he passed away peacefully in his sleep.

He was a fantastic Dad, husband, son, friend, but to us he was always ‘Kiddie’, the same 17 year old Coventry kid whose drumming style and personality blew us away when he first walked into our rehearsal room 20+ years ago.

Kiddie enriched our lives, and the Bolt Thrower sound. He leaves a massive hole in the lives of everyone who knew him and will be very sorely missed by many.”

Karl, Jo, Baz, Gav & the loyal BT crew

 

RIP Martin ‘Kiddie’ Kearns
07.03.77 – 14.09.15
