Jason Mackenroth, who played drums for Rollins Band from 1998 to 2004, died on Sunday after a nearly four-year battle with prostate cancer. He was 46.
Following his tenure with the Rollins Band, Mackenroth released two solo albums and spent eight years playing as a band musician with the Blue Man Group's Las Vegas production.
Born in Sacramento, California on May 9, 1969, Mackenroth first caught the attention of Henry Rollins in 1989 while playing with a power pop trio called Mother Superior. Rollins produced two of the group's albums and eventually asked Mackenroth and his bandmates to join him in Rollins Band. Over his six years with Rollins Band, Mackenroth performed on seven albums and four world tours.
