So bummed to hear this. He was always so cool to me after we did a couple interviews for Earcandy back in the day Always offering to put me on the guest list when he came to town. Plus of course I loved all his music. I am really still in shock. :shock:

Ah that sucks, not sure how or when I first heard him, but always liked his clean jangly power-pop songs. I hadn't kept up with him in years, so although he died way too young, glad to hear he was still active and performing. I do remember putting a song on a mixtape for a "punx" dude in high school and we were sitting around drinking and when the song came on he said "This sounds like Bryan Adams". Haha.

In case some might not have heard him, here are two songs I remember liking a lot both had "All" in their titles and a clip from the (old) 9:30 Club!

Never a big fan of Tommy the singer-songwriter, but I have nothing but admiration for someone who has given their entire life to the cause of rock'n'roll.

I am especially heartbroken as I know he was a big part of a plan for one of my favorite bands of all time to reunite next summer. I only hope the rest of the guys see this is as a wake-up call and push through regardless. Life is (literally) too short to waste.

Thanks for that clip Flex, the first time I saw him was 9/89 at the old 9:30 Club, so just a few months before that show.

Here's an excellent podcast series that covers most of his career, done in Sept of this year in Bethesda, MD:

I learned some interesting stuff about him and The Replacements that I was not aware of, plus his work with Jules Shear too.
