Sanctuary and Nevermore vocalist Warrel Dane passes away

The American musician Warrel Dane, known as the vocalist of the bands Sanctuary and Nevermore, died on Wednesday, December 13, in São Paulo, Brazil.

The cause of Dane's death is the heart attack that happened to the musician in the midst of working on his second solo album.

Guitarist Johnny Moraes, who was a member of Dane's solo band, was with the singer around midnight when Warrel started to feel bad.

"He died in the night," Moraes told Brazil's UOL. "He was in the apartment where he stayed during the recording of the album when it happened. I gave him cardiac massage and we called the Mobile Emergency Care Service (SAMU), who came very fast, but when they arrived, he was already dead."

"His health was already very weak because of his diabetes and his problems with alcoholism," Moraes said. "He was already facing a lot of health problems."
