Original Carnivore guitarist Keith Alexander was reportedly killed in a bike accident earlier this week - Monday night (July 11). His wake is being held today (July 14) between 2:00 and 5:30 p.m., and between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. at:

In addition to playing with Carnivore, Alexander spent a three-year stint with Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, touring extensively throughout North America and Scandinavia, with some audiences numbering over 20,000.

A body piercer since 1991, Keith had performed well over 22,000 piercings and over 150 cuttings and brandings. Formerly a staff piercer for Gauntlet, Inc. in New York City, Keith spent one year as a full-time apprentice to master piercers Dan Kopka and Mark Seitchik. Gauntlet founder Jim Ward issued Keith's certificate on August 2, 1994.
