“I know I speak for us all in sharing my deepest condolences to his family. I can not imagine how they must feel. Myself, the band, our family, friends and co-workers are devastated over this loss. We were supposed to be back in Michigan today, but I am going to stay here with Mike until I can bring him home to his family,” he continued. “We’ve already been contacted by the press asking if it was me who was in the accident, so I want to stop any rumors before they spread. I’m asking everyone to please respect our and his families’ privacy in this difficult time. RIP Mike. We will never forget you, my friend.”
According to The Tennessean, Sacha was driving guests back and forth to a cookout on Rock’s estate when he lost control of the ATV and crashed around midnight Monday. Rock and a friend discovered Sacha’s body face-down on an embankment.
