Jan Kuehnemund, founder and lead guitarist for the hard rock group Vixen, passed away on Thursday, October 10, 2013 from cancer. The band posted the following announcement on the official Facebook Page:
"It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Vixen founder and lead guitarist, Jan Kuehnemund, who lost a fierce battle with cancer on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Though most well known for her gifted guitar playing and other musical talents, Jan was a rare friend and beautiful in every sense of the word. Humble, thoughtful, loyal and kind, she was the most gracious of women, possessing the quiet strength of a true warrior. She genuinely loved and appreciated her friends and fans more than most could ever know. Those who were most fortunate to have known her and loved her are heartbroken at the loss of Jan, whose spirit will shine through her music eternally."
Vixen's latest album was "Live & Learn" in 2006. The band disbanded and reformed three times, the latest in 2008, resulting in the live release "Live in Sweden" in 2009. Jan Kuehnemund was 51 years old.
