Taking to his Facebook account, Oliveri posted a note following the death of Sherman. He recalled how they met each other during a tour of Queens of The Stone Age in 1998. He also recalled doing gigs with Sherman being part of Spirit Caravan.

He wrote the following:

“It just kills me to hear that Dave Sherman has passed and left us without his smile and good cheer in this world. He was always rad , sincere and cool to me. I first met him in 1998 on tour with Queens of the Stone Age , we did some gigs with Wino’s band “Shine” (which later would become Spirit caravan) and chrome Locust, which was Todd youth’s band (another fallen brother) Dave Sherman RIP ‘ bass brothers forever man’ . Safe travels my friend. Goodbye”

Sherman was 55 years old at the time of his passing. No official cause of death has been revealed, although there are unconfirmed reports that it was a cardiac event.

Sherman’s death was confirmed by the Spirit Caravan Facebook page, which shared a photo of the musician and wrote: “REST IN PEACE DAVE SHERMAN. RIDE THE CARAVAN TO THE SKY!”

Sherman’s former Spirit Caravan and The Obsessed bandmate Scott “Wino” Weinrich also weighed in on his passing, writing: “R.I.P DAVE SHERMAN. He was a great person with a big heart. I am grateful for the time we shared and the music we created. We are stunned and saddened beyond belief. He will be sorely missed.”
