Tony Sly, front man of the band "No Use For A Name (N.U.F.A.N.), has passed away at the age of 41. The cause of death has not yet been released.

The news came via Sly's long time record label, "Fat Wreck Chords", which released the following statement this morning:

It is with great sorrow that we must say goodbye to Tony Sly of No Use For A Name. We received a call earlier today of his passing, and are devastated. We have lost an incredible talent, friend, and father – one of the true greats. [Label owner] Fat Mike had this to say: “One of my dearest friends and favorite song writers has gone way too soon. Tony, you will be greatly missed.”

No Use For A Name was formed 1987 with Sly joining in 1989.and was a still a member until his death. The band has produced nine LP's and five EP's plus Sly has released five solo projects as well.

I was lucky enough to see him perform twice, once as a solo act as he opened for NOFX in April 2010 and as the front man for N.U.F.A.N. as the headlining act in May 2009 at Chop Suey in Seattle. The following videos are from that performance.

A talent taken from us way to early. R.I.P Tony.
