Ty Longley
September 4, 1971 – February 20, 2003

tylongleyTy Longley was born in northwest Pennsylvania.  In 2001, he joined metal band, Great White, one of the top rock acts of the ’80s, as they were beginning to mount a comeback for the new millennium.  Unfortunately, their return to the national headlines was caused by a tragic event that claimed Longley’s life.  While on stage at The Station club in West Warwick, Rhode Island, on February 20, 2003, the band’s pyrotechnics accidentally set off a fire that quickly consumed the venue.  In all, 100 people perished in the fire, including 31-year-old Ty Longley.
