From Metal Insider:
The New York area has lost a pillar of its metal community, as Relapse Records director of retail sales and marketing Pat Egan has passed away. Egan had been in a hospital for the last several months after suffering complications from pneumonia. He’d been showing signs of improvement as recently as last week, and had been texting friends and sending updates about his condition via social media.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with the Relapse Records family. Click here to read the rest of Metal Insider’s tribute to Egan.
