Bobby Sheehan, the 31-year-old bassist for the rock band Blues Traveler, was found dead in his New Orleans house Friday morning (Aug. 20), the band's label said. "Since the band's early days in Princeton, N.J., Sheehan had always been one of the four cornerstones of the highly successful and loved quartet," a statement released by A&M Records read. "He was there for every tour date and had performed on all six of the band's albums. He will be missed by the artistic community to which he gave so much." Blues Traveler's most recent album was Straight On Till Morning (1997).
