Anything on Fire Drummer Is Dead

Tripp Joye, drummer for the band Anything on Fire, died in a car crash Friday last night in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. As always, details are sketchy at this point, but it appears the 25-year-old Joye swerved his vehicle off the road.

Update: the fatal accident occurred around 4:09 a.m., very close to Joye’s parents’ house. “The car hit the corner of a driveway, then crossed over several yards before hitting a cable television box….Joye’s car was turning over when it then hit a tree and broke in two.” The investigation is ongoing.

Update 5/6/08: Tripp’s obituary appeared today in the Winston-Salem Journal. Condolences can be left here.
