R.I.P. Armando Acosta

The sad news that Armando Acosta, legendary drummer with SAINT VITUS, has passed away at the age of 58. Saw him in action at the 2009 Roadburn festival (photos included). I was fortunate enough to meet him and take a few photos of him, though only in passing. A real nice guy, laid back and unassuming.

Here's a pic I shot of him with my buddy Ben, a long time VITUS aficionado.

You can be sure he will be missed.

That's a great picture.
His smile is what stood out and what one most remembered about Armando.

He was unassuming and generous to a fault. Glad you got to meet him.
Meeting people was a highlight of the tours for him.
