Southern rock trendsetters Molly Hatchet have announced the loss of another legend via a post on facebook. Hlubek co-founded the band in 1971 and passed away yesterday due to a heart attack aged 66. His death follows that in April of former bandmate and bassist Banner Thomas.
The post reads:
“It is with great sorrow to announce the passing of our beloved friend and band member Dave Hlubek. Dave was one of the founding lead guitarists of Molly Hatchet. Amongst his many contributions to southern rock is Flirtin’ with Disaster. Our condolences and our prayers go out to his family during this time of loss. He will be missed but never forgotten, as the music lives on through his legacy in Molly Hatchet.”
Rock, and indeed roll, in peace brother.
