McDermott was best known for his tenure as the vocalist for Threshold, a position he held from 1998's, "Clone" album to 2007's, "Dead Reckoning." He also spent time with German metal band Sargent Fury in the early 90's and most recently was part of the band Swamp Freaks.

RIP just doesn't seem to cut it when a legend passes. I am not sure what is appropriate to immortalize the musical superiority or the person behind the music. You will be missed but you will live forever in our hearts.
