Sorry to post this news late (and certainly no disrespect meant to death metal fans mourning everywhere). RIP to Frank Watkins, best known as a classic member of Obituary. He has succumbed to cancer. I didn’t know Frank but my old friend Drew Smerdon who was in Merauder/Unbalanced did and I’ll repost his words here:

I got some very upsetting news today that my friend -manager-mentor- Frank Watkins passed away . It just pisses me off “The higher power” what ever you believe in takes the best from this earth and leaves the shit behind!! Frank was the guy that would give you the shirt off his back tell you straight up what he thought no dickin around.When everyone would walk out of the room on you he would be the person that walked in.My thoughts and prayers go out to Frank’s family and bands he has played with.It was great touring and hanging with you bro.I now youre up there playing with Cliff Burton and the bests. I LOVE AND MISS YOU ALREADY BRO!! R.I.P
