BulletBoys Drummer Johnny Giosa Dies in Car Accident
Here’s some news that will no doubt bum out glam rock fans. One-time BulletBoys drummer Johnny Giosa, perhaps best known as Johnny G, was killed in a car accident on Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 42. The band confirmed that it was indeed Giosa who died, courtesy of a Facebook post.
The text of that emotional (and unedited) post is as follows: “I post this message with a heavy heavy heart…Words can not express how devastated I am to hear about my friends passing, Mr. Johnny G. My sincerest condolences to his family and the ones he loved. We’re all going to miss you brother! RIP….Skinnard!!”
Giosa was a bit of a Renaissance man. He didn’t just bash the skins. He also dabbled in other creative fields, such as acting, modeling and hair styling. He enjoyed stints in bands in both Philly and LA, but the BulletBoys were his most recent musical gig.
Metal Sludge reported that friends say the drummer hanging out a club and that he was likely killed on a freeway in Southern California while driving home.
