Firehouse’s Frontman C.J. Snare Dies

“This is a somber day for the world of Rock N Roll,” the message commenced. “With heavy hearts, we share the loss of our dear brother: CJ Snare, the stalwart rock and roll icon, frontman, and founding member of Firehouse.”

According to the statement, Snare, who had been anticipated to resume touring this summer after recovering from abdominal surgery he had planned in the fall, “unexpectedly departed” at his residence on Friday night (April 5).

In October, Snare informed his fans on Instagram about his surgical procedure, expressing his eagerness to recuperate and return to the stage.

On March 27, Snare conveyed, “I’ll soon be back on stage with FireHouse. Prioritizing my health for a complete recovery before my comeback.”

“We are utterly devastated by CJ’s sudden passing,” the band wrote on Saturday, acknowledging Snare’s exceptional vocal prowess and mentioning his relentless touring with FireHouse for the past 34 years.
