A photo from Jay Reatard's last show...
The only decent photo I got from Jay Reatard's last show.
Today we all found out Jay Reatard had passed away on January 13 due to "cocaine toxicity, and that alcohol was a contributing factor in his death."
We will all miss you so much. I'm grateful to have seen him so many times, and to have spoken with him. He participated in something i'm putting together.
The first time I saw him was in Green Bay, WI with Lost Sounds. I remember him playing a few songs just him on the drums playing a guitar and singing too. "Who was this man?" I wondered...
Thank you Jay for what you brought while you were here. It's stupid you're not around to keep going. If anyone deserved to, it was you.
Rest in peace.
