He died yesterday, he was at a moment in KISS and in White Tiger!

RIP Mark.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_St._John

Mark St. John (born Mark Norton on February 7, 1956 in Hollywood, California - died April 5, 2007) was a guitarist best known for his short stint with the rock bandKISS.
Mark replaced Vinnie Vincent as lead guitarist for KISS in April 1984, following Vincent's falling-out with the band (Mark was suggested to Bruce Kulick was featured on the song, "Lonely Is The Hunter"). During work for the album, St. John clashed with the other members of the band, and eventually developed arthritis (Reiter's Syndrome), which caused his hands and arms to swell. He was all but unable to perform live as a member of KISS, and only played three (one in full) shows during the "Animalize" tour, with Kulick filling in for the rest. He was officially replaced by Kulick in December 8, 1984.
St. John's only video appearance with KISS is in the video for "Heaven's On Fire".
After leaving KISS, St. John formed his new group White Tiger with one-time Black Sabbath vocalist David Donato and released one LP in 1986. St. John teamed up with Jeff Scott Soto in 1988 to make a demo. St. John made another demo in 1990 with fellow former KISS member Peter Criss.

Probably so, Mark was younger than both of my parents, this is upsetting. Neutral

That's awful, I knew Mark back in '86 or so when I left Yngwie's band, he was supposed to be part of another band I was looking into...51 is way too young!!! RIP
