Former TRIBE OF GYPSIES Singer GREGG ANALLA Dies In Motorcycle Crash


Acclaimed singer Gregg Analla (SLAVIOR, SEVENTHSIGN, TRIBE OF GYPSIES) was killed Thursday afternoon (January 4) when he lost control of his motorcycle and struck a curb in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He thrown from the bike after hitting the center median and was transported to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Officer Simon Drobik, a spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department, told the Albuquerque Journal that Analla “was wearing a helmet at the time” of the accident, which occurred south on Unser just north of Montano NW.

Analla, a descendant of the Isleta Pueblo Indian tribe, was most recently involved with legendary guitarist George Lynch‘s “Shadow Train” project which released a two-CD set in July 2015 via Rat Pak Records. Songs on the disc were also featured in Lynch‘s movie “Shadow Nation”, a thought-provoking documentary that explores the trials and tribulations that face Native American Indians in our world today.

In a 2013 interview with Metal Assault, Lynch stated about Analla: “He’s 100 percent Pueblo Indian. He’s a curator at the Indian Pueblo Center in Albeqerque, and he’s just a really talented guy. He’s an artist, a sculptor, a speaker and all these kinds of things. So he’s very knowledgeable about native culture and history and things lie that. And he’s an insanely good singer. He’s been in a lot of bands, bands that should have, could have, would have but didn’t in the ’90s [laughs], but people know who is. He’s played with a lot of great people.”
