The Script Guitarist Mark Sheehan Died at 46 Following Hospitalization

The musician who played guitar in the ‘Man Who Can’t Be Moved’ group is announced to have passed away at the age of 46 after suffering from a brief illness.

AceShowbizThe Script guitarist Mark Sheehan has passed away aged 46 after a brief illness. His shock passing was confirmed on Friday, April 14 on the Irish band’s official Facebook page, two weeks after the group’s latest gig was announced.

“Much loved husband, father, brother, band mate and friend Mark Sheehan passed away today in hospital after a brief illness. The family and group ask fans to respect their privacy at this tragic time,” their statement said.

The announcement prompted more than 2,000 comments and well-wishes from fans within minutes of it being posted on Thursday evening around 6.15 PM.

It was reported at the end of March the group were set to play The Halls in Wolverhampton in June. The band’s lead singer Danny O’Donoghue, 42, told the Sunday World newspaper at the end of 2022 Mark was his perfect songwriting partner.

He said, “Myself and Mark share the songwriting responsibilities. I really enjoy what Mark does as a writer. And I feel privileged that I get the opportunity to work with somebody that even if we had never met and he wasn’t in this band I would be playing his records today. I’m such a fan of what he does and I really respect him as a lyricist, and hopefully vice versa.”

Dubliner Mark had been with The Script, whose hits include “For the First Time”, since the group formed in 2001. Danny added in his 2022 chat about the release of the group’s single “Dare You to Doubt Me”, saying it was about spreading positivity in a dark world.

He added, “With everything going on in the world we want to spread a positive message that no matter how hard things are, we’ll all come out the other end bigger, better and stronger. Don’t think so? Well, I dare you to doubt me!”

Danny and Mark Sheehan wrote the tune around the opening days of the group’s arena tour last summer with co-writers and collaborators Jimbo Barry and David Lucius King, as well as Toby Gad, the songwriter behind John Legend‘s “All of Me” and Beyonce Knowles‘ “If I Were a Boy”.
