Some sad news as producer Jerry Finn has been taken off life support after suffering a severe brain hemorrhage last month. The famed producer worked on notable albums from Blink-182, Morrissey, Green Day, Rancid, Bad Religion, AFI and Alkaline Trio.

According to a Billboard report, a friend made the announcement via the Prosoundweb forum:

Even though he did make snail-like improvement these past 31 days, he is not any better for words and has not had any consistency in the tests that the medical team have done for him. At this time the hemorrhage has done massive damage to his body which will leave him severely disabled and in need of acute care for the rest of his life. We know Jerry wouldn't want to live like this in a vegetative state.

Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Update: To clarify, Jerry Finn has not passed away. We tried to avoid any implication of this in the story itself, but some people found the "In Memoriam" tag inappropriate so we have removed it. We regret any offense or confusion that this may have caused.
