R.I.P. Mark Abrahamian

Starship guitarist Mark Abrahamian has died after playing a show in Norfolk, Ne. He was 46. After graduating from The Musicians Institute in Hollywood, Ca, Abrahamian went on to play live with the likes of Christopher Cross, Pat Travers, and Chuck Negron. He’d been a member of the band, led by former Jefferson Starship vocalist Mickey Thomas, for twelve years. He was planning to get married in December. Abrahamian had been suffering chest pains but hadn’t told his colleagues. He complained of feeling unwell after their opening set on a bill with Survivor and Boston on Sunday, and collapsed soon afterwards. Tour manager Scott Harrison tells Today Online: “We had just finished the show. We were in the dressing room eating. He told the bass player he wasn’t feeling well.” The guitarist fell to the floor while on a phone call with his fiancee. Medics rushed him to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

"I met Mark after a Starship show in 2008. He was a really cool guy to hang-out with & an awesome guitarist. I'm sure he's jammin' with the best in Rock- N -Roll heaven !!!"
