If you have been following the news about unexpected fatalities over the past three years, you may have learned to expect a certain cause of death. This reason is frequently “unknown.”
That has occurred again at a time when several explanations are being proposed for what appears to be an increase in fatalities with unknown causes.
Brian “Brizz” Gillis, a founding member of the 1990s band LFO, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 47.
According to Fox News, the cause of death remains unknown.
Gillis co-founded the band with Rich Cronin in 1995. (the initials stand for Lyte Funkie Ones). Soon after, Brad Fischetti joined the group, and Trans Continental Records signed them.

The band’s biggest success was “Summer Girls,” released in June 1999, when Gillis was replaced by Devin Lima.
Cronin died of leukemia at the age of 36 in 2010. Lima passed away in 2018 at age 41 from Stage 4 adrenal cancer.
After “Summer Girls,” the band enjoyed success with “Girl on TV,” which was released in November 1999 and featured Jennifer Love Hewitt in the music video.
According to Rolling Stone, the group disbanded in 2002 and later rejoined before Cronin’s death. Gillis was absent at the reunion.

Fischetti posted a monument to deceased family members and friends on Instagram.
“Every story is made up of chapters. Some develop naturally. Some you have to cut up in your mind. The first two chapters of the LFO story lost a main character yesterday. Brian ‘Brizz’ Gillis passed away. I don’t have details and it wouldn’t be my place to share them if I did. I am really struggling to process this tragic loss. I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it; the LFO Story is a tragedy. If you know what I’ve been doing, you know I’m trying to bring light into the darkness. Trying find redemption in pain and suffering. Trying to honor the legacy,” he wrote.
More on this story via The Western Journal:
“Today I honor my former bandmate and friend, Brizz. If you watched the LFO Story livestream or have seen the band and me play it live, you know what Brian meant to LFO. If it wasn’t for his hard work and dedication in the early days of LFO, the first two chapters, the LFO you came to know and (hopefully) love would not exist,” he wrote. CONTINUE READING…
