Black Tusk rocker Jonathon Athon lost his life on Sunday (09Nov14) following a motorcycle accident in Georgia.

The bassist suffered "irreparable brain damage" and fell into a coma after the crash on Friday (07Nov14), according to his bandmates.

Reports suggest Athon's Harley-Davidson Sportster collided with an Suv in Savannah, Georgia on Friday night. The rocker and his girlfriend, Emily Boutwell, were both taken to the local Memorial University Medical Center.

A statement from the band reads: "As per his wishes, we removed Athon from his life support systems and his organs will be donated. His body will be cremated and a memorial is being planned for family and friends in Savannah. He was 32 years old and will be forever missed. Thank you all for your support during this devastating time for us; it would have made him proud."
