Dave Vision, a.k.a Dave Franklin of the NJ Hardcore band Vision has passed away today. Not sure what the cause was but the HC scene has lost another musician. I saw Vision a few times, either in NJ or in PA at Sea Sea’s. They were always a fast, energetic band to see. I know I have some pictures of them but they are probably buried in pile of other photos.
The news was confirmed by NYHC legends Sick Of It All:
Other Hardcore and punk bands paid tribute to Dave Vision when they heard the news:
Rest in peace Dave Franklin of the band Vision💔
