Bummed Out

Shit.
I don’t fucking believe it.

A couple of posts back I metioned being on YouTube because of the James Taylor party. Maybe some of you checked out the vids and remeber seeing this guy.

Just found out that he died two nights ago of a heart attack. His name was Dave and he not only organized but hosted the JT party and the Beatles party. I only knew him for a short while but I thought he was an incredibly generous and very cool guy who absolutely loved music. He played in our church band and also in a local cover band.
He had no history of attacks in the past but get this – I found out that he had been complaining of constant heartburn that wouldn’t go away. Despite the urging from his wife to see a doctor, he didn’t. In fact, he performed just last weekend at a party and reportedly had to take several breaks due to feeling fatigued. Such a shame. To have warning signs popping up around you and to do nothing about it, well that just pisses me off.
It just made me realize all over again that life is too short. And we never know when it is our turn to go. But if our body is telling us something is wrong, we damn well better listen to it.
He was a great guy and I’m glad I had the privilege to know and perform with him.
I’m gonna miss you Dave.
R.I.P.
