Lynn Strait, 30, lead singer of Los Angeles-based new-metal group Snot, was killed in a car crash in L.A. on Friday (Dec. 11) afternoon, according to his label, Geffen Records. The charismatic singer for the thrash group, which released its debut, Get Some, in May 1997, also was the former bass player of punk band Lethal Dose. According to Sean Henning, the group's co-manager, Strait was killed in a three-car crash while exiting the 101 freeway on his way to L.A. when his car was hit by a truck. "We're devastated," Henning said Friday. "This is a tough one. His family, friends and fans will miss him. Lynn had a lot of fans who grew to love him through his music, and hardcore music has lost a great frontman, singer and songwriter." Snot were in the process of recording demos for their next album, following a stint on last summer's metal-edge OzzFest tour, during which Strait was arrested for indecent exposure. Also killed in the early-afternoon accident was the band's mascot, Strait's dog, Dobbs, who appeared on the cover of Get Some.
