Scotty Lockridge (High Flight Society) Passes Away

Posted by - 01:38 PM on 05/21/12
Scotty Lockridge, drummer of High Flight Society, passed away this morning. He was 31.
Message from the BandThis morning, we lost our best friend and the greatest drummer any of us ever had the pleasure of playing with. We are still processing the news but we know for sure that he was found unresponsive in his home and later passed away. We are absolutely devastated that our brother is gone. Words can't express how much we already miss him. Suffice to say, none of our lives will ever be the same. He loved making music and we loved making music with him. He leaves a legacy with what he created - High Flight and beyond. Most of all, we loved HIM for who he was. We will see you on the other side, Scotty Lockridge.

I've never heard of these guys but after having to deal with Joe Sell from LBC passing away, my heart goes out to these guys.

Dude was a sweetheart. I toured with HFS back in '07 and Scotty was just a solid, sweet guy. Nobody could say a negative thing about him or the rest of his bandmates. My heart is breaking for them, I hope they can find peace throughout this turmoil. Ugh, I hate death. RIP Scotty.

We still don't know what the actual cause was. He had a history of epilepsy and that seems to be the most likely cause. It's absolutely horrible. I toured with that band for almost 3 years and Scotty kept us all laughing constantly. He was a genuine guy who acted the same around everyone, no matter where he was or who he was around. He was an amazing person and I'm so sad that I'll never hear him make fun of cheesy church songs ever again! The funeral was very emotional to say the least, but it was also very hopeful that we know he is at peace. RIP peace Scotty
