ugh. that sucks.


It's sad to lose an original member of the LA punk scene. He will be missed but not forgotten, as the music still, and always will live on. Adios Amigo!

Wow, that's sad. Part of two great bands, too. But what is it with Social D and premature death? Just a few years ago their lead guitarist died after falling in his driveway in the middle of a move. I think he was 38 when that happened. Jeez.
