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.
