Nick Traina† Sep. 20, 1997 (aged 19)
* May. 01, 1978
† Sep. 20, 1997
Cause of Death
Manic depression and bipolar disorder. Traina stopped taking his medication and on his fourth suicide attempt succeeded at age nineteen in taking his own life.
When Nick Traina died, he was 19 years old, just starting up a new band, and dealing with the ills of manic depression. Best known for his membership in Link 80, Traina had just formed a new band called Knowledge and had recorded a promising new demo. Signed to Asian Man Records at the time, the president of the label was to receive the tapes after Traina's death. Left behind were grieving friends who cared for him deeply, a mother and family who loved him dearly, and a brief legacy of tunes that continue to inspire and provoke.
