Kevin Whisler, the longtime drummer of the glam metal band Bloodgood, has passed away.
Kevin Whisler joined Bloodgood in 1988 and played with them until 1991. In 2013, he returned to the band was a consistent member since. Kevin first recorded on the band’s fourth album, Out of the Darkness, followed by several live releases until 2013, when he recorded on the band’s sixth album, Dangerously Close. Whisler was a very active musician, recently joining two tribute bands, including FEVER 103 and Get Lucky. He also had played in 911, Clockwork Orange, and Watchmen.
Unfortunately, in November 2021, Whisler fell ill and was unable to work. He was diagnosed with lymphoma, tested positive for COVID-19, and formed a blood clot in his brain, which resulted in a stroke. On November 5, 2021, he passed away.
From the Metal Onslaught Magazine staff, our condolences and prayers are with his wife Elaine, their family, and the band. Rest in peace, Kevin.
