Former Sebastian Bach touring drummer Mark 'Bam Bam' McConnell has passed away, reportedly as a result of kidney and liver failure. He was Bach's touring drummer from 1997-2005.

Bach had written the following message before he passed away: "Everybody, please say a prayer. My friend & live drummer for years, also on Bring 'Em Bach Alive Mark Bam Bam McConnell is fighting for his life right now in hospital in Gainesville Florida. Miracles can happen though so everyone have Bam Bam in your hearts & prayers please. He is an amazing drummer & life long friend. We love you Bam Bam you can kick this in the ass just like you play your drums! Fight hard buddy we all wanna rock with you we love ya dude."

Unfortunately, one of the drummer's relatives confirmed his passing: "Mark passed at 9:42 this morning surrounded by family and close friends. We will miss him... he was precious to all of us and touched all our hearts deeply and profoundly. On behalf of our family thank you to all of you for your prayers and support."
