Jon Wysocki Obituary – Jon Wysocki, the former drummer of the rock band Staind, passed away at the age of 53. Wysocki co-founded Staind in 2004 and served as the band’s drummer until 2011. Throughout his time with the band, they produced popular hits such as “It’s Been Awhile” and “So Far Away.”

His current band, Lydia’s Castle, confirmed his passing through an Instagram post. The band announced that he passed away on Saturday, surrounded by loved ones. Although the cause of death has not been disclosed, a bandmate from Lydia’s Castle mentioned on Facebook just hours before his passing that Wysocki was in the ICU dealing with liver issues.

Staind also acknowledged his death on social media, paying tribute to him on Instagram:

“We first crossed paths with Jon through mutual friends in 1994. In 1995, we, along with Mike, Aaron, and Johnny April, came together and established Staind. The 17 years that followed were filled with unforgettable memories. From practicing in Ludlow, Mass to touring worldwide, Jon played a crucial role in shaping our band’s identity. Our thoughts are with Jon’s family and fans across the globe who cherished him.” Wysocki departed from Staind in 2011, reportedly due to conflicts with singer Aaron Lewis, who is another founding member of the band.

In a post on X, Lewis expressed on Sunday: “The battles we faced together. The battles we fought against each other. The battles we fought alongside each other while battling our own demons. The battles we emerged victorious from and the battles we lost. He was my friend. He was our brother. My heart is shattered. My world is forever changed.”
