Magellan’s Wayne Gardner Dies We regretfully report that Magellan guitarist and bassist Wayne Gardner has died.

In a short post on the band’s website, his brother and band vocalist and keyboard player Trent announced: “Today, my brother Wayne Gardner, died from a self inflicted use of a firearm. Our family is devastated by his loss and in a state of shock. I prefer not to relay any further details until I know all the facts myself. I will always cherish our time as kids growing up and our life in pursuit of music. All the effort and joy of our unique experience is what I want to think about now. His young family is my immediate concern. Please say a prayer for his eternal soul and for his family. We all love you Wayne and hope peace in God are with you. Your loyal brother…”

Magellan formed in 1985 and released their debut album Hour Of Restoration on the Magna Carta label in 1991 and follow-up Impending Ascension in 1993. They were one of the band’s alongside Dream Theater and Spock’s Beard, who flew the flag for modern day progressive rock music in America as well as helping keeping progressive music in the public eye throughout the 90s downturn.

Since the release of 2007′s Innocent God the band had been releasing various excellent works on iTunes and were in the process of writing a new studio album, to be titled Inert Momentum. Our thoughts are with the Gardner family.

I will miss Wayne dearly. I came to know Wayne when Trent asked me to join a band him and his brother Wayne were forming. At that time, the name of the band was Streamline. Soon, we changed the name to Magellan. I was Magellan's first Bassist and it was truly a pleasure to make music with the Gardner brothers. Wayne was such a gentle soul and the nicest guy you could ever meet. Additionally, Wayne was a killer guitarist with chops that could pull off any riff that Trent would throw at him. I remember seeing the Gardner brother's mom (Mrs. Gardner to me) at the grocery store now and then and she would go on about how proud she was of Wayne and Trent; that she was so happy that Wayne had married such a wonderful wife. I will always cherish the time I spent with Wayne. The countless rehearsals in the smallest bedroom turned in to a practice room you can imagine. You're sorely missed Bro. God Speed.
