RIP: Thomas Marth (The Killers’ saxophonist)

Well, this sucks. Thomas Marth, whom you might remember as the saxophonist from The Killers who made Sam’s Town so damn awesome, apparently shot himself on Monday. The A/V Club reports:

Thomas Marth, who recorded and toured with The Killers as a saxophonist for 2008’s Sam’s Town and 2010’s Day And Age, was found dead Monday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Las Vegas home. The county coroner has now officially ruled his death a suicide. Marth, 33, is survived by his parents and two siblings. Via Twitter, the band expressed sorrow for “our friend,” adding that “there’s a light missing in Las Vegas tonight. Travel well, Tommy.”

It’s always sad when someone so talented dies too soon. Our condolences to Thomas’ family and friends.

Thomas Marth
