I’m interrupting Filipina Explorer’s supposed to be Travel Tuesday post on Pagudpud and La Union with this saddening news.
Kapatid/ (the already) defunct P.O.T and Advent Call front man Karl Roy passed away at 1:01 am today due to heart attack. News also has it that Roy was hospitalized due to fluid in his lungs. Not much has been said about his death yet; In fact, you’ll only find about a couple or so of websites bearing the report. But we could only surmise that his untimely demise is connected to two previous strokes in 2007 and 2008. Roy has had a bypass surgery since.
His sister, Kathryn Roy, left this message for Karl’s fans and friends on her Facebook account:
The last time I saw Karl Roy was during the Fete dela Musique in Ortigas where Kapatid performed some of their most ingenious hits, including the poignant “Luha”. Aaah, those were great times, lad.
