Zero’s Judge Murphy Passes Away

Judge Murphy, best known for his role as lead vocalist and lyrical collaborator in the San Francisco band Zero, passed away on Sunday. Zero bandmate Steve Kimock took to Facebook to share the bad news.

“It is with great sadness that we share the news that our beloved brother Judge Murphy passed away this afternoon at 1:05PM pst. He was in his mountain home surrounded by the deep love of his family & friends. His courage and strength have been nothing short of heroic. We love you Judge; you will be deeply missed and always remembered.”

Zero has cancelled their performances on October 24 and 26. The show on October 25 is now billed as a tribute to Judge to benefit the Lyba Murphy College Fund, for Judge’s 9-year old daughter. A tribute video to Judge is available below.

I had the sincere pleasure of sharing a brief friendship with Judge. A kind soul among the craziness we’re surrounded by in our daily lives. I’m grateful and will cherish the memories! A prayer in celebration of his gift to us. Love and peace to his wife, daughter, family and friends.
