    Did Rigor Mortis set in after he collapsed? I imagine Richard Christy would know who this guy is.

    Metal guitarist Mike Scaccia died early Sunday morning after suffering a sudden heart attack onstage while playing with his band, Rigor Mortis. He was 47.

    Scaccia was performing at the Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas for the 50th birthday of Bruce Corbitt, the lead singer of Rigor Mortis. Scaccia was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner.
    Scaccia had also complained about strobe lights on stage, and an earlier report said he had suffered a seizure. Seizures can be induced by flashing lights.
    Scaccia was born July 14, 1965 in Babylon, N.Y. Along with drummer Haden Harrison and bassist Casey Orr, Scaccia founded Rigor Mortis in 1983. The band, which mainly played thrash or speed metal, released its debut album for Capitol Records in 1988.
    Scaccia departed the band in 1991 to play with Ministry.

    He was also a Cockstar - he Played for the REVOLTING COCKS

    Born in Babylon, New York, Scaccia helped form thrash pioneers Rigor Mortis in 1983, but moved on to join the better-known Ministry six years later. Though he officially left that band in 1996, his blistering licks can be heard on Ministry’s latest album, “Relapse.”

    Scaccia, who reformed Rigor Mortis in 2003, also played for the Revolting Cocks.

    I liked Rigor Mortis, still listen to that first album. They had a very unique style, similar to what a lot of death metal bands would adopt without giving RM their due. RIP.
