    Wayne Static, the singer of "evil disco" industrial metal band Static-X, who was known for his big, vertical hair and big long beard, has died. The singer and guitarist, born Wayne Richard Wells, was 48 when he died on Saturday, November 1, which was three days before his 49th birthday.

    Further details are unavailable, although it has been speculated that Static died of a drug overdose.

    The artist was preparing for a tour that kicked off this month, as well. So sad and so tragic. He will be missed. Static-X were one of the bands ushering in modern metal in the '00s.

    We send our best out to the singer's friends, family and fans.

    Were you a Static-X fan?
