Wayne Swinny, a founding member and the band’s guitarist, passed away after experiencing a cerebral haemorrhage while on tour with Saliva.

The 59-year-old is now in the ICU following the medical emergency, the band stated just hours earlier.

“Our dear brother Wayne Swinny was discovered Tuesday morning in medical distress and paramedics were called,” read a statement from the band’s official Facebook page at the time.

Hours later, however, the band would announce that Swinny had passed away.

“It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our brother Wayne Swinny,” the post read. “Wayne passed away this afternoon from a Spontaneous brain hemorrhage while we were out on tour.”

“I’m not even sure what to think or how to feel right now,” said Saliva singer, Bobby Amaru in a statement.

“My heart aches for Wayne’s family, his friends, and anyone who had the joy of being around him. My heart aches for his daughter Nikki. He loved that girl so much.

“He was a guitar hero onstage with all the rock ‘n’ roll swat that most guitar players dream of. Offstage he was a proud father, an Ancient Aliens expert, and an incredible human who had zero enemies! He would go out of his way to make sure you had a good time.”

Amaru, who joined the group in 2011, adding that he was happy to have known Wayne for almost 12 years, both on and off the stage.

“He was the older brother I never had. I learned so much from him and we had a f*****g blast together! I will cherish it all for the rest of my life!

“God Bless you, Wayne. I know we’ll meet again!!”
