Former Elysium Singer Found Dead
The site reports that Elysium's drummer, Tim Jorgensen, issued the following "open letter" about Allen's passing:
It is with my deepest regret that I must pass on the news of the death of Terry W. Allen. He was found dead in his apartment on Monday, October 22nd, 2012. To most reading this he was a great guitarist, innovative song writer, talented singer and the backbone to Elysium and the Inspired Hatred cd. He also played in Paramoure in the late 1980's, Phoenix Rising (a country band of all things) in the early 90's, Parricide, Rage (this goes way back to high school in the early 80's) and I am sure I am missing some as well. He was truly a rocker indeed. He brought the best out of me as a drummer and had a profound influence on me both musically and personally. I have truly been privileged to be part of Terry and his family since we started jammin' together at 11 years old. Read the rest of his statement here.
