According to a Facebook posting by former Manowar guitarist Ross "The Boss" Friedman, ex-Manowar drummer Scott Columbus passed away yesterday evening (Monday, April 4th) at the age of 54. A cause of death is still unknown at this time.

This information was later verified by Columbus' girlfriend Nancy who wrote: "For all you to know, this is Scott Columbus's girlfriend of over 3 1/3 years... and I cannot get the words out, but he died today... Please send your thoughts and prayers. I can't believe he is gone. He was the absolute love of my life."

Scott Columbus was a part of the band from 1983 until 1990, when he was eventually forced to leave the band when his son fell ill. He was replaced by Rhino for The Triumph of Steel album but returned for Louder Than Hell and remained with the band until the summer of 2008 when he was replaced once again by Rhino during Manowar's performances in Bulgaria and Magic Circle Festival.

...and even a good friend to Dio.

He wasn't. He says he was but even wnendy said Joey was just someone who Dio knew, nothing more, nothing less.

When did she say that? I remember seeing a video interview with him, Dio and Lemmy and they all seemed to be pretty buddy with each other.

Not true, my pc is so true it capitalizes it after I type it automagically!
