The Chicago music scene is mourning the death of Lucky Boys Confusion guitarist Joe Sell.

Sell was found dead Tuesday on Chicago's West Side. Visitation for Sell, a 1996 graduate of Naperville Central High School, will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. May 18 at Grace Pointe Church, 1320 E. Chicago Ave., Naperville. A funeral service will be at 10 a.m. May 19 at the church.

"We are saddened and devastated to hear the news of our band member, friend and brother Joe Sell's passing," Lucky Boys Confusion said on its Facebook page. "The five of us have toured, recorded and performed as one for the last 15 years. More importantly, we've all grown up together. There simply are no words right now."

Lucky Boys Confusion's vibrant blend of  rock, punk, ska and hip-hop has garnered a strong fan base since its formation in 1997 and the band has been working on new music.
