Michael Riesenbeck, a session guitarist and friend of Workman's reportedly broke the news via Facebook. "Guys, we lost Geoff Thursday morning," he wrote. "He was at home, in his bed and it was peaceful. We will be making funeral arrangements early this coming week. It has been rough. Please pass this on to anyone who knew him or loved him."
Workman's resume also includes three Journey albums ('Infinitiy', 'Departure', 'Evolution'), the Cars' eponymous 1978 debut and Foreigner's 1979 offering 'Head Games.' After working with Motley Crue, Workman helped craft another heavy metal favorite with the release of Twisted Sister's 1984 breakthrough 'Stay Hungry.'
Workman began his production career in 1970 when he worked as the tape operator on King Crimson's 'Lizard.' He also contributed to recordings by a variety of other artists, including Toto, Jason and the Scorchers and Drivin' and Cryin', among others.
