Ty Longley was the guitar player and vocalist for Great White when he was killed as part of The Station Nightclub fire on February 20, 2003. At the time, it was the fourth deadliest nightclub fire in American history, killing 100 people.
The fire was caused by pyrotechnics set off by the tour manager of Great White, which ignited flammable sound insulation foam in the walls and ceilings surrounding the stage.
A website memorial has been created dedicated to the 100 people that perished.
Ty is buried at the Oakwood Cemetery in Sharon, PA.
