What had happened is that he and been with friends and family on Wind Lake in Racine, Wisconsin when while he was swimming did not return back. It has been stated that divers had been searching for him, but reports allegedly suggest he is presumed dead.
A post on the website of music label Matador Records reads, “Dennis Flemion, one half of the Milwaukee duo known as The Frogs, was identified earlier today as the missing swimmer from a Saturday afternoon disappearance on Racine, WI’s Wind Lake.
“Our thoughts go out to (bandmate and brother) Jimmy, the rest of the Flemion family, their friends and everyone who was lucky enough to know Dennis. Simply saying, ‘he’ll be missed’ doesn’t come close to covering it.”
Corgan took to his Twitter.com page after hearing the news and wrote,
“I’m devastated by the loss of my friend Dennis Flemion. Words can’t explain the sorrow. A tragic loss. Please pray for his family.”
Flemion had been with the Smashing Pumpkins playing live keyboards from 1996 to 1997.
