    Rest in Peace SEAN REINERT (Cynic, Death, Perfect Beings)

    48 years old. WAY too young.

    I love his work on the FOCUS album especially

    Huh? Whatever happened?

    LOVE his playing on Focus.

    So sad. Found unresponsive in his house. No cause given yet.

    Easily one of the best prog drummers around, and sadly unknown.

    Damn! 2020 is not shaping up to be a good year. I loved Seanís drumming in Gordian Knot & Cynic. 48 is a horribly short life...so much ahead at that age. RIP

    Sad news. Sean also played on most of the tracks from Cortlandt by Sean Malone:

    RIP; his drumming on Death's Human and Cynic's Focus is of a rare breed.

    One of my favorite musical artists since the first time I heard him. Rest in peace, Sean.

    The drumming was certainly my favorite part of Cynic. Very sad turn of events.

    RIP
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    his husband posted this on FB

    I’m broken. As many of you now know, my husband Sean passed away last night. Some of you in the inner circle I was able to reach via phone last night and this morning to try to let you know what happened before it spread across social media. For those I couldn’t reach to tell you myself I’m sorry.

    I’m still trying to put together the events of the last 24 hours. After coming home from work last night I found Sean unresponsive on the floor, I administered CPR with the assistance of the 911 operator and he was taken to a local hospital via ambulance. There is no cause of death and an autopsy will be performed. Sean and I just completed our yearly physicals about 3 weeks ago and we were both in good health. Sean did not have any sort of drug abuse issues and I’m still in a state of disbelief. I can’t begin to comprehend how my life and the lives of Seans close friends and family have just been shattered.

    That’s about all I’d like to share at this point. It feels strange to even have to make this post over such a private matter but I understand Sean was a public figure and beloved by many around the world. For myself, Seans family and close friends I ask that you please give us time to grieve. The fans he adored so much lost an influence and phenomenal drummer. Some of us lost our Husband, Son, Brother, Uncle and Best Friend.

    Thank You,

    -Tom & Patti (Seans husband and Seans sister)

    What a shame...and only 48! That's how old I am...man. Rest in peace. I loved his work in Gordian Knot.

    I listened to both Gordian Knot CDs yesterday and remembered why I thought so highly of his drumming skills.
