Hard rock and comedy personality C.C. Banana, known partially for conducting humorous interviews with famous musicians while wearing a full-sized banana costume, reportedly committed suicide at his New Jersey home on Monday, May 21.

Reportedly, Banana, whose real name was Anthony John Confessore, was distraught over financial trouble partially brought on by his investment in a tribute album featuring covers of songs dedicated to full-figured women. He left a good-bye message on his Facebook page.
