No Use for a Name frontman Tony Sly dies at 41

The singer of the Northern California punk group was found dead on August 1st after his solo concert the night before. The cause of death is unknown and will be further investigated. Tony Sly passed away at the age of 41. He left behind his wife Brigitte with their two daughters Keira and Fiona.

“It is with great sorrow that we must say goodbye to Tony Sly of No Use for a Name. We received a call earlier today of his passing, and are devastated. We have lost an incredible talent, friend, and father – one of the true greats,” said the statement released by band’s label Fat Wreck Chords.

No Use for a Name was formed in San Jose, California in 1987 by Chris Dodge, Steve Papoutsis, Rory Koff and John Meyer. Sly joined the group two years later, when he was 18, replacing Meyer. In 1990 they released a debut album called Incognito.
