Maserati drummer Jerry Fuchs dead at age 34

The Athens music community is again mourning the loss of a young local musician. Jerry Fuchs, drummer for instrumental post-rock band Maserati, died early Sunday morning in New York City after apparently falling more than five stories down an elevator shaft. News reports speculate he may have been trying to jump from a broken elevator when a piece of his clothing caught and triggered his fall.

Maserati formed in Athens in 2000, and have gathered a steady following after releasing a handful of records on local label Kindercore. Currently signed to Brooklyn based Temporary Residence Limited, the band recently completed a tour behind its newest record, Passages.

The band posted the following message on its twitter account Sunday afternoon: "with overwhelming sadness, bids farewell to our drummer and dear friend Jerry Fuchs. Love you, bro."

Updates to come as more information becomes available.
