In Memoriam: David Zablidowsky

David Zablidowsky

Sad news to report today: Adrenaline Mob bassist David Zablidowsky has died after the band’s touring RV was struck by a tractor trailer. He was 37 years old. The news was confirmed in part by Disturbed bassist John Moyer, who formerly played in Adrenaline Mob.

“This talented, humble, sweet soul left us today way too soon,” he wrote on Facebook. “If you saw him perform you were lucky. If you knew him you were blessed. RIP David Z. You were a beast on stage and it was my pleasure to have shared it with you on your last days. Going to miss you brother.”

Hailing from Brooklyn, Zablidowsky grew up in a musical family. He formed a band with his older brother called ZO2, which gained notoriety in the VH-1 Rock the Nation Tour with KISS and Poison. The brothers were also featured in an IFC TV series called Z-Rock. He also played with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rubix Kube, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. He joined Adrenaline Mob in March and has been on tour with the band.
