Kiss

Died: 2007-04-05
Age: 51
Cause: Stroke

Mark Norton aka Mark St. John, KISS' lead guitarist on the album Animalize, sadly passed away of a cerebral hemorrhage. During work of the album Animalize in 1984, St. John developed arthritis (Reiter's Syndrome), which caused his hands and arms to swell. He was unable to perform live as a member of KISS, and only played three (one in full) shows during the "Animalize" tour, with Bruce Kulick filling in for the rest. He released an all instrumental CD in 2003 called "Magic Bullet Theory". Mark was 51 years old.
