It’s been a rough month so far in the metal world with three bassists passing in a matter of days, and the anniversary of the death of another on this very day three years ago.
There’s little I can write that’s not already appeared on umpteen other web sites and facebook posts, so I’ll simply say a heartfelt “rest in peace and thanks for the awesome tunes – your music will live on and be enjoyed by thousands more, even though you’re not around to give us any new shit!”
