    Apparently his girlfriend posted it on her facebook and it's on a couple of message boards. One here at UM and at melodicrock.com

    Same here. I was actually spinning Dead Reckoning when I read the news. This is very sad news.

    My heart just sank into my stomach. He easily makes my very short list of all time fave vocalists. RIP Mac.

    man, that sucks. Happy I got to see you.

    Everyone, he is with DIO now, can't be that bad in the afterlife... though wish he was still here with us, his time wasnt up yet.

    Nope. That was Damian Wilson. Wilson was the original singer for Threshold, and Mac replaced him. Then a few months before ProgPower, Mac left Threshold and Wilson re-joined the band temporarily (which turned out to be permanently afterwards).

    At such a young age...He was surely not more than in his 40s.

    Anyone knows the cause of death? It was mentioned before that he has serious health problems when he left Powerworld.

    Huge loss for the metal world.

    R.I.P. Mac.

    This really sucks. I had just gotten into Threshold in the past 6 months. I'm sorry I never got to see him perform.
