Melodicrock.com reports:
R.I.P. JOHNNY G OF BULLETBOYS:
More sad news. This is getting old already! Bulletboys drummer Johnny Giosa has been killed in a car crash in LA. From: www.noisecreep.com/.
One-time BulletBoys drummer Johnny Giosa, perhaps best known as Johnny G, was killed in a car accident on Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 42. The band confirmed that it was indeed Giosa who died, courtesy of a Facebook post. The text of that emotional (and unedited) post is as follows: "I post this message with a heavy heavy heart...Words cannot express how devastated I am to hear about my friends passing, Mr. Johnny G. My sincerest condolences to his family and the ones he loved. We're all going to miss you brother! RIP....Skinnard!!"
Giosa was a bit of a Renaissance man. He didn't just bash the skins. He also dabbled in other creative fields, such as acting, modeling and hair styling. He enjoyed stints in bands in both Philly and LA, but the BulletBoys were his most recent musical gig. Metal Sludge reported that friends say the drummer hanging out a club and that he was likely killed on a freeway in Southern California while driving home."

From the electroharmonix.vintageusaguitars.com website:

Bill Berko passed away on Jan. 19, 2010. Bill was an early collaborator with Mike Matthews and was asked to be a partner in the fledgling Electro-Harmonix company.

Bill Berko was the designer of the early Foxey Lady pedal built by Aul Instruments for Electro-Harmonix in 1967 and was also the designer of the legenday Axis fuzz, the first pedal to bear the Electro-Harmonix name as well as a Guild-branded version again called the Foxey Lady.

Here is the link to the obituary notice:

My apologies, the date of Mr. Berko's passing is listed as January 2010. I didn't notice that until now. It may be old news, but still sad to know that one of the early collaborators from Electro-Harmonix has passed on.
