Former Remy Zero Drummer Gregory Slay Dies After Long Fight With Cystic Fibrosis

4 January 2010 10:14 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Last week saw the tragic death of much-beloved Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, and on New Year's Day, the music world lost another great skinsman. Gregory Slay, who was known best for playing the drums in underrated turn-of-the-century alt-rock band Remy Zero, passed away on Friday (January 1) after a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis (a hereditary disease that leads to complications in the lungs). Slay was 40 years old.

Remy Zero was founded in Birmingham, Alabama in 1990. They caught their first break when Radiohead — who at the time were not the cultural touchstone they became after the release of Ok Computer — heard their demo tape and invited them to open for them while they toured the U.S. for The Bends. That got them attention from Geffen Records, who signed them and released their self-titled debut album in 1996. It's a twitchy, pyched-out, druggy debut that is best summed up »
