Shine on, Joe.

Pink Floyd tribute band, The Machine, is mourning the loss of their co-founder, lead singer, and lead guitarist. The band announced on social media back on January 25, Joe Pascarell passed away. No cause of death has been announced.

The band said in a Facebook post, "We’re eternally grateful for the lifetime of friendship and music we’ve shared on-stage and off, and we know he will be with us as The Machine continues on. Shine on, Joe."

Pascarell co-founded the band with Tahrah Cohen back in 1988. He would leave the band twice, once in 2000, and again in 2012. Joe re-joined the group in 2015, and would remain in the band as lead singer, and lead guitarist.
