It is with deepest sadness that we announce that guitarist and Carvin artist Shane Paul Gibson passed away at 5:45 AM on April 15th, 2014 in the UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama as a result of complications from a blood clotting disorder. He was 35 years old. Shane was a long-time member of the Carvin family, having conducted numerous clinics, appeared multiple times at NAMM, and performed with Carvin gear on stages around the world for countless fans. He was a very talented and gifted musician, and his virtuosity was matched only by his wit and generosity. He will be missed beyond measure, and we take solace in knowing that his spirit will live on through his music and fans.
Shane's final recording with his band stOrk, titled "Broken Pieces", was just released this past Monday, and showcases his talent and skill, and will be a fitting memorial to Shane's legacy as one of the preeminent guitarists of the hardcore/punk genre.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, bandmates and all those who loved him as much as we did.
