The Voice of FireHouse Leaves Us

The music world is in mourning as we say goodbye to a rock icon. C.J. Snare, the incredible voice behind the hard rock band FireHouse, has left us at the age of 64. His daughter, Heather, shared the sad news that after a tough fight with cancer, C.J. passed away due to cardiac arrest.

A Legacy of Rock

C.J. Snare wasn’t just a band member; he was a founding force of FireHouse back in 1987. After his first band, Maxx Warrior, ended, he and his mates started what would become a legendary rock journey. C.J. was not only the voice that led the band but also played the keyboards. He poured his talent into all seven albums they released, hitting it big with their debut album which soared to double platinum status in the U.S.

Hits That Defined a Generation

With C.J. at the helm, FireHouse gave us anthems like “I Live My Life For You,” “Here For You,” and “When I Look Into Your Eyes” — songs that have become the soundtrack of many lives. His ability to connect with fans through music was truly special.

Remembered by Bandmates

Perry Richardson, who co-founded FireHouse with C.J. and played bass, said, “C.J. had one of the great voices in rock history, and he will be greatly missed.” His words echo the sentiment of fans and fellow musicians around the world.

A Personal Loss

Beyond the stage and studio, C.J. was a family man. He leaves behind three children and a legacy of music that will continue to inspire and move people. At 64 years old, his journey has ended, but his voice will live on forever.

Rock in Peace, C.J. Snare

As we remember C.J., let’s crank up those FireHouse hits and celebrate the music, the memories, and the man. Rock in peace, C.J. Snare. Your voice will never be forgotten.
