Willy “Lange” Langenhuizen, bass player of San Francisco Bay Area thrash metal band LÄÄZ ROCKIT, passed away on October 23 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was 57 years old.
LÄÄZ ROCKIT vocalist Michael Coons posted the following message on his official Facebook page: “In shock… the important thing is to honor Willy and his family at this time. I will get back to all of you when I’m able to… too difficult right now to do so, please understand.”
TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy, who played with Willy in DUBLIN DEATH PATROL, wrote: “Today I lost my best friend. Willy, you have always been the person in my life that has been there for me and I love you for that. I will alway have you in my heart and soul and treasure all the great times we had with you and Kelly in this life. Until we see each other again on the other side and have a great reunion. You rest in peace, my friend.”
