    Allen Shellenberger (drummer for band Lit) dies at 39

    Very sad news after his long fight with brain cancer.

    Allen Shellenberger dies at 39; drummer for Orange County band Lit --

    Allen Shellenberger, the drummer for the multi-platinum-selling Orange County rock band Lit, has died. He was 39.

    Shellenberger died of brain cancer Thursday at his mother's home in Artesia, said Ken Phillips, the band's publicist. Shellenberger was diagnosed with malignant glioma in May 2008 and began undergoing treatment; he performed with the band until last fall.

    "To know Al was to know laughter," band members Kevin Baldes, Jeremy Popoff and A. Jay Popoff said in a joint statement. "He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. Words cannot begin to express how much he will be missed."

    A graduate of Kennedy High School in La Palma, Shellenberger and his bandmates began performing together in 1989.

    My BF texted me about him this morning. I was never a big fan of Lit, but I do own a couple of their albums. Still sad though.

    The Band Lit are co-owners of the Slide Bar in downtown fullerton. I heard that they had something going on Friday night for him, but I wasn't able to make it.

    I almost went to Kennedy High. John Stamos went there too.

    Terrible for someone to die so young.
