Blink-182 and Morrissey producer Jerry Finn died yesterday (Aug. 21) at the age of 39. He had suffered a massive brain hemorrhage last month and was taken off life support on Aug. 9.
Finn got his start as an engineer in the early 1990s before shifting into production on such albums as Rancid’s “…And Out Come the Wolves.” Among his best-known production credits are Blink-182’s “Enema of the State” and Morissey’s “You Are the Quarry.” Finn has also worked with Green Day, Bad Religion, Sparta, AFI and the Offspring, among many others.
Most recently, Finn lent production to Morrissey’s upcoming “Years of Refusal,” due in February.
According to a family friend, plans for a donation or scholarship fund are in the works, as is a memorial for friends and family.
