1981 – January 7, 2013
Kent Abbott was a guitarist who is best remembered for his tenure with Canadian pop punk bands, Grade and Somehow Hollow. Abbott joined Grade just after the band released what would become their final album, 2001’s Headfirst Straight To Hell. The group disbanded the following year. They have since been recognized as one of hardcore’s influential bands. Although Somehow Hollow formed in 2000, it wasn’t until the break up of Grade that Abbott committed to them full-time. They released Busted Wings And Rusted Halo on Victory Records in 2003, but called it quits in 2004. In later years, Abbott played with the .45 Goodbye. Kent Abbott was 32 when he died on January 7, 2013. Cause of death was not immediately released.
