We recently lost our best friend and drummer Brent Walsh to melanoma cancer. Brent was diagnosed in mid November and passed away on January 2nd, 2012. Brent was the original and only drummer of WHITE LIE since formation in 1982. His unique hard hitting south paw open stance drummer style will be terribly missed and his infectious groove and smile will not be forgotten.
Brent was a great father to 3 and a wonderful husband to his high school sweetheart Tammy for over 27 years. Brent leaves behind a legacy of living life to the fullest and playing hard.
Upon Brent understanding his diagnosis he called upon his long time friend Chris (Drumslut) Silva and demanded that Chris fill in and "drive the WHITE LIE bus for him". Chris and Brent have known each other since high school and there is no better person to step in play in his honor.
His last words to me in his final days were "I want you to continue on and shred for me" and "do not be pussy rockers and kick ass"
Brent, we will live up to your expectation with Chris driving the bus for you and make sure that WHITE LIE forges on in your name. You will always be on the first seat on the bus. -
