No One released one self-titled album in 2001 via Immortal Records and even played alongside Mudvayne, Drowning Pool, Hatebreed and others on the Second Stage of Ozzfest 2001, which was headlined by Black Sabbath.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the boating accident occurred on June 20 when the victims’ 19-foot boat collided with a 66-foot barge, destroying the smaller vessel. As mentioned, the bodies of Bielarz’s wife, Viengsavnh, and friend, Jeremy Muzika (who played in a local cover band with Bob), were found.
