Mullin had co-founded Corrosion of Conformity in 1982 as a hardcore punk act with bassist Mike Dean and guitarist Woody Weatherman. He had been forced to miss multiple shows in the past four years due to various health issues, such as an alcohol-related seizure in 2016.
Our condolences go out to his family and loved ones.
