Long-time guitar technician Francis Stueber passed away last weekend at the age of 52 from a COVID. Paul Stanley, frontman of the legendary KISS, posted the news on social media.

Stueber was the guitar technician for both KISS and Stanley’s solo band, and has also worked for Heart and The Offspring.

Stanley writes:

“My dear friend, buddy and guitar tech for 20 years, Fran Stueber died yesterday suddenly of Covid. Both on and offstage I depended on him for so much. My family loved him as did I. He was so proud of his wife and 3 boys as they were of him. I’m numb.”
