MOLLY HATCHET frontman Phil McCormack has died. No official cause of death has yet been revealed, but the 102.7 WSNR radio station has reported that it “looks like a heart attack.” He was 58 years old.
Band has issued the following statement: “It is with great sorrow to announce the passing of our friend and band member, Phil McCormack. Our condolences and prayers go out to his family during this time of loss. Phil‘s contributions to MOLLY HATCHET were heard around the world. He will be missed but never forgotten.”
McCormack, who performed with Jacksonville’s MOLLY HATCHET in the early 1990s, joined the band full time in 1995, taking over for Danny Joe Brown, who left the band due to health problems.
McCormack’s death comes some 18 months after the September 2017 death of Dave Hlubek, a founding member of the band. Earlier that year, Banner Thomas, the band’s former bassist, also died.
