Longtime Mastodon Manager Nick John Has Passed Away

Sad news this weekend, as longtime Mastodon manager Nick John has passed away. It was revealed last week that John had recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a particularly aggressive form of the disease, and it was suspected that John’s illness was the reason for Mastodon’s recent tour cancelation.

Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds was the first to publicly break the news of Nick’s passing. He and drummer Brann Dailor had previously posted some loving tributes to Nick. You can see his Instagram post revealing Nick’s below.

We didn’t know Nick personally, but any loss to the metal community is a loss for all of us, and by all accounts he was a terrific manager responsible in large part for Mastodon’s great success (among many other acts over the years). On behalf of everyone at MetalSucks, we wish Nick’s family, friends and everyone close to him all the best.
