An incredible drummer from an incredible band, Reed Mullin had his demons. Alcohol took him down, like so many before him. Mullin, a founding member of Corrosion of Conformity, will be remembered by his rich hardcore and heavy metal discography.
In recent years as alcohol took its toll, Reed was absent from some COC performances and suffered a seizure in 2016. It was not looking good for the rock warrior, and now we know his particular battle has been lost.
Mullin drummed on one of my personal favourite albums, Deliverance, one of the best rock records of the 1990s. From that album, here is “Albatross”. Rest in peace Reed.
