Angel Dust have shared sad news that their former bassist, Frank “Banx” Bankowsky, has passed away at the age of 56. Frank was one of the band’s co-founders and played in the band for a long period of time (from 1984 to 2020).
Commented the band on tragic news:
”Dear friends, with a very heavy heart we have to announce the passing of Angel Dust co founder and former band member Frank “Banx” Bankowsky.
“This came out of nothing for everyone and we are shattered and shocked. Though we lost close contact after his departure he was still a friend and a brother to us. He was the humerous soul of the band, a good guy and true friend and his work and contribution especially on the lyrical side where unsurpassed. Thanks to him, we had legendary experiences and endless laughter on tour and in the studio. His character has driven us to new and higher goals. He will be truly missed and he was loved.
“Rest In peace, brother. Thank you for the good times, the music, the lyrics and the laughter. May you enlighten the darkness of the other side.”
