Void Drummer Sean Finnegan 1965-2008

According to Dischord Records, Sean Finnegan, drummer with the band Void has passed away. (Link from Can’t Stop The Bleeding.)


Sean’s drumming in Void was always a standout in the crowded field of DC hardcore. Most drummers channeled their intensity into a straight, linear increase in regular tempo, but Sean’s style was way beyond that athletic exercise. His drums swell and contract with the guitar changes without ever giving up any focus or energy. Nobody in or out of the genre matched his elastic anarchic fury behind the kit.

We are sad to announce that Sean Finnegan, the drummer from Void and an original member of the Dischord family, passed away on Wednesday January 30th of an apparent heart attack, he was 43. Sean’s family will receive friends Monday 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 P.M. at HARRY H. WITZKE’S FAMILY FUNERAL HOME, INC., 4112 Old Columbia Pike, Ellicott City, Maryland. Sean played in Void while they we’re active from 1980-1983 and was recently working on the set of the HBO production, “The Wire”. An obituary and guest book can be found in the Baltimore Sun. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Sean’s many friends and family members.

In lieu of flowers Sean’s family ask that donations may be made to the Fisher House, Walter Reed Hospital , Washington, D.C

So long, Sean.
