Managerobit: David Lander

David Lander, who managed Kittie (and, indeed, was father to Morgan and Mercedes from the band) suffered a fatal heart attack last week.

Morgan has issued a statement:

"We wanted to extend our appreciation for all of the support and kind words we have received in the days since my father's passing . He was an amazing man who lived and breathed KITTIE, and he will be missed by many. [KITTIE's August 20 show at the Key club in Hollywood, California] is the last one he booked, so it is very important to us. We all owe it to him to make it a good one, regardless of how hard it is going to be. Please come out, pay your respects and help support us!"

Lander was reportedly in his early fifties; consensus amongst music and metal industry message boards is that, while his decisions might not have been ones everyone would agree with, his commitment to his daughters' band was unquestionable.
