Beyond Fright: EIGHTEEN VISIONS Bassist Mick Morris Passes Away R.I.P

18VisionsMickMorris16It’s a sad day for fans of defunct Orange County rock band Eighteen Visions, as Mick Morris, bass player and all around awesome guy for the band, passed away in his sleep last night (June 2nd). Morris had a heart condition that had left him with poor health as of late, but seemed to be doing better, even planning to take part of this year’s Rockstar Mayhem Tour.

Before joining Eighteen Visions in 2000, Morris had been an active member of hardcore band XclearX, and following the breakup of Eighteen Visions, Mick remained very active in the hardcore/metal scene, working for metal label Century Media and also at LA’s SoundCheck Hollywood record store, where he would always go out of his way to make every fan and friend feel welcomed.

R.I.P Mick 🙁
