Tragic news has been making its way around social media since last night. Dave Franklin (aka Dave Vision), the frontman of Jersey hardcore band Vision reportedly passed away. Condolences have been pouring in from fellow hardcore bands.

Sick of It All writes:

It’s with very heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to one of our true brothers, Dave Franklin, who unbelievably passed away today. It seems unreal to think that someone so close to us has been taken away. He loved laughter like no one else and he burned incredibly bright during his short life. We’ll always have his glow in our lives because every memory is a fond one. May you rest in peace, Dave. We’ll miss you so much.

Blackout Records writes:

Dear Dave,

It’s hard to believe that I saw you at a show a few weeks ago and now I hear you are gone. Those early SOIA / Krakdown/ Raw Deal shows with you guys were always a blast, and I don’t think I ever saw you without that glint in your eye and a wise ass smile. You will be missed motherfucker. You will be missed.

Love,
Bill

RIP Dave “D-Vision” Franklin

Agnostic Front’s Roger Miret:

Sad news to hear about a true friend, Dave Franklin, who passed away today. Rest in peace, Dave. You’ll be missed.

Vision have been around for three decades and been recently active. This is no way to kick off 2017. Rest in peace Dave.
