Swanny was one of the founders of the band, which formed just outside of Memphis in 1996.

Throughout Salvia’s history, Swanny has been a steadfast guitarist.

In 2011 he helped welcome new lead singer Bobby Amaru to the band.

Amaru released a statement after Swinny’s death.

He said: “I’m not even sure what to think or feel.

“My heart aches for Wayne’s family, his friends and everyone who has had the joy of being around him. My heart aches for his daughter Nikki. He loved this girl so much.

“On stage he was a guitar hero with all the rock ‘n’ roll swat that most guitar players dream of. Away from the stage he was a proud father, an expert on Ancient Aliens and an incredible human with zero enemies! to make sure you had a good time.”

Amaru, who joined the band in 2011, added that he’s grateful to have spent almost 12 years of his life with Wayne on and off stage.
