William Tucker (musician)

William Tucker (1961 - May 14, 1999) was a guitarist whose credits included work with Ministry, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Pigface, Chemlab, and Chris Connelly. He grew up in New Jersey where he formed Regressive Aid with Andrew Weiss and Sim Cain (both later of Gone and the Rollins Band). He also taught guitar lessons to locals, one of whom was Mickey "Dean Ween" Melchiondio of the popular alternative band Ween. On May 14, 1999, 38-year-old Tucker was found dead in his apartment, of an apparent suicide. Many close to him think he took his own life to escape the pain of a years-long illness.
