Vital Remains With Scott Wiley

Ex-Vital Remains Vocalist Scott Willey Passes Away


Former Vital Remains vocalist Scott Willey (also known as ‘Scott Wily‘) has passed away. The band’s guitarist Tony Lazaro confirmed the sad news overnight:

“It is with heavy heart and deep sadness that i say Gator Gaeton Collier and I (Tony ) lost and old friend and singer of Vital Remains Scott Willey. I had just seen him this summer at Summer Slaughter Fest in July. And we had a nice conversation about alot of things. We told some road stories from the past and we had some good laughs. I will always remember the good times my friend. Until we me again for that next jam! Rest in Peace Brother ….My Condolences to his Family and friends! \m/”

Wiley fronted the band from 2008-2011, his cause of death was not specified. It’s certainly been a tough year for Vital Remains as Wiley isn’t the only former vocalist of the band to pass in 2017. Chris Ross, who performed live with the band in 1997, was murdered this past summer.
