Animals As Leaders guitar tech and Equilibrium Guitars luthier Dave Cohen has passed away after what sounds like an incident at a recent Counterparts show. One fan at the show posted on Reddit: “On Sunday night at I was at a Counterparts show. Guitar tech for Animals As Leaders was in the pit enjoying the show, when unexpectedly things took a turn. I had posted about it earlier. I asked the venue what his condition was. They sent me this post.
“As for what happened. ‘He took an elbow to the face, lost consciousness, and never regained it. Paramedics tried all they could, they performed cpr and used defibrillators after he was having a seizure. It was very sad to see. RIP, prayers to his friends and family.'”
Animals As Leaders has also commented on the situation, saying: “Last night we experienced a part of life that none of us look forward to, the unexpected passing of our dear friend and guitar tech Dave Cohen. He was an amazing person, loved by all who met him. He was a wise and centered being. A true inspirational person to be around. We are thankful for the experiences and memories we shared with Dave. Our condolences go out to his friends and family. A soul is lost but never forgotten.”
We wish Cohen‘s friends and family all the best at this time.
