The bassist for the metal band Adrenaline Mob was killed in a three-car accident on a Florida highway that injured seven others. "Hi everyone. I don't even know where to begin, so I will start by saying thank you for all of the love and support from everyone". I am so grateful for the outpouring of love we have received from around the world. In addition, Zablidowsky had played with Trans-Siberian Orchetra from 2000-2006, with another stint beginning in 2010 and continuing until the time of his death.
"I want to personally thank Marine Lance Cpl".
Cannata adds: "We are all devastated and will need some time to physically and mentally cope but the outpouring of love has been nothing short of inspiring".
One fan, Zoli Hajdu, shared his condolences on Facebook: "Deepest condolences to the band and family of David Z after this awful accident". Patrick Dumon for his bravery in assisting me to pull our driver Jason from the wreckage and for attending to his wounds. I love you Dave, I will miss you more then words can say. Without his selfless act of courage I would not have been able to get them clear of the RV before it was engulfed in flames. To the rest of my band mates and crew, I love you all. "You were one of the sweetest souls I've ever known".
"Please keep them in your prayers", GoBig Entertainment said on a Facebook post on their page.
Adrenaline Mob's sound guy, Robert Dressler, said he heard a "boom" as he was riding in the RV.
"To all of our family of touring musicians across the globe, PLEASE BE CAREFUL when on the road".
Adrenaline Mob formed in 2011 and is a metal supergroup of sorts; its lineup includes members of Symphony X and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
