Guitarobit: Kent Abbott

Kent Abbott, guitarist with Grade and Somehow Hollow, has died.

Abbott joined Grade as they were touring in support of their last proper album, at the same time as Somehow Hollow's Brad Casarin was helping the band out. Casarin took Kent back with him to his main band, but a crisis at Grade led to them returning to the fold for the last year of that band's (original) run. Once Grade finally wound up, Somehow Hollow was brought out of the deep-freeze and reactivated.

Somehow Hollow split in 2004.

Kent Abbott died on January 7th; he was 31. Donations in his memory - suggested for Canadian Mental Health - are being handled by the funeral home.
