The former masked member was an integral part of the Kottonmouth Kings for many years and will forever be missed by the group and fans around the world. Brad “Daddy X” Xavier has released the following statement:
“We are out on tour preparing for the release of our new record. At what should be an exciting time for the group we have been blindsided, shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible news about our friend and former band member Pakelika’s sudden death. Nothing can prepare you for such horrible news and this reminds us all just how precious life is and the importance of friends and family. It has been a couple of years since Big Pak performed with the Kings, but his presence and the impact he made on us will live forever. Patrick ‘Pakelika’ Cochrun was a very unique and special person. We traveled the world together and played hundreds of shows together. The memories and experiences we shared will live forever in our hearts and souls. We want to thank the underground for the tremendous outpouring of condolences and support at such a sorrow filled time. Take care of yourselves and spread love and positive vibrations. Rest in peace big Pak; you will be missed!”“Pakelika’s friends and family want us all to celebrate his life and memory. We are making plans now for an event to celebrate Pak’s life and to help raise money for his hospital bills. Details will be announced shortly, until then we ask that everyone light a candle at 4:20pm this week for our fallen brother and friend. This is a very sad time for us all, but let’s all take some time and remember Pak for the loving and caring person he was” added Suburban Noize president Kevin Zinger.
