Rock artists, including Alice in Chains Jerry Cantrell and Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale, are mourning the death of longtime tour tech and photographer Scott Dachroeden.

In an Instagram post accompanied by a photo of Dachroeden, Cantrell writes, “You captured so many great moments over the years my friend.”

“This was the last one I snapped of you,” the “Man in the Box” rocker adds of the picture. “Having a beer and a laugh, playing a game of 4 ball with me and the fellas. Rest easy my brother.”

Rossdale has also shared a photo of Dachroeden alongside his dog Chewy.

“I learnt a lot from Scott’s energy and warmth,” Rossdale writes. “I’ve known him since we began, but what a treat to tour with him recently…I was so glad to spend time with him.”

Commenting on Rossdale’s post, Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale, who also worked with Dachroeden, writes, “I’ve been in tears since I heard.”

Dachroeden had been in the hospital with stage 4 cancer. A GoFundMe was launched earlier this month to help him pay his medical bills.
