|he Used front man, Bert McCracken was found dead in his apartment in Orem, Utah yesterday morning. There is no official report of what has happened yet but he seems to have overdosed on multiple prescription drugs. When asked to comment about their band mates death they all replied with no comment, except for Jeph Howard, bassist/vocalist of The Used.|
"Ever since their [McCracken and Gerard Way] falling out (see Used Front man Cryptically Reveals Rift With My Chemical Romance), Bert had been drinking more and keeping more to himself but I never thought that it would go this far." McCracken was engaged again to a Amber Silkos, who has yet to be contacted for an interview on this situation. Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance, was contacted by Quinn Allm Guitarist/vocalist of The Used, to be told about the situation but Way had nothing to say to our interviewers.The remaining members of The Used have yet to officially decide if they will continue with the band but Howard says, "Im pretty sure we will, Im sure he [Bert] would've wanted us to." McCracken's funeral will be held at Highland City Cemetery in his hometown of Orem, Utah on the 28th of July, 2006. Its a private funeral that only a few close family members, band mates and friends will be able to attend. Check back for more updates and interviews on this situation.
