Molly Hatchet lead singer Phil McCormack dies at 58
“Phil was a fabulous, singer, band mate, brother, and human being,” the Roadducks said in a statement. “Collectively we spent thousands of hours that turned into thousands of days together, creating an unbreakable bond few people are fortunate enough to ever experience.”
Then McCormack’s death was announced by Molly Hatchet.
“It is with great sorrow to announce the passing of our friend and band member, Phil McCormack. Our condolences and prayers go out to his family during this time of loss. Phil’s contributions to Molly Hatchet were heard around the world. He will be missed but never forgotten.”
McCormack’s death comes some 18 months after the September 2017 death of Dave Hlubek.
Earlier that year, Banner Thomas, the band’s former bassist, also died.
Hlubek founded the band in Jacksonville in 1971, the same year he graduated from Forrest High School. The band is named after a legendary killer prostitute.
