Sorry to hear Gregg. Coincidentally, I just got home from a funeral/memorial. 22 year old son of a friend of mine, who owns a great landscape company. Kid passed in his sleep last week. No idea what caused it. He too, was a musician, played the stand up bass. Just got back from playing in Santa Cruz, at a few bars and on the streets. Very loved kid by all the people there to celebrate his life today.

Totally unexpected.

And now he's just gone.... leaving a lot of us second guessing ourselves, wondering if there was anything we could have done.

I think depression must cloud judgment and makes things seem more hopeless...
There's nothing you could have done. You can't see a troubled soul.

So sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear about your friend's son Dana. Especially tragic when anyone dies so young.
Was he in a band? Santa Cruz, CA?

Thanks. In my head I know you're right. In my heart... still trying to make sense of it.

You can't.

Focus only on the dash.

Yes, CA and yes in a band. Not sure if it was an actual real band, or just 3-4 guys jamming together as they got their ears wet. Sounds like they went on a little 6 month road trip playing street corners, local clubs, etc. I think he was in school to be a music engineer or something similar.

I lucked out last year when a friend of 45 years died. We were in Arizona, he was in Washington. Got a e-mail informing me, all I could do was open a Pacifico, sit in my chair and cry and remember him fondly. I don't do memorials or funerals, but I grieve in my own way.

I agree. Gotta do these things your own way. I only met the kid a handful of times, but I went in support of the parents. Pretty nice memorial, not depressing and somber. I can do those, but the old school dark depressing funerals, forget it.

I did a couple of records for a great piano player at Caribou Ranch in Nederland, Colorado in the eighties. I knew he had a drug habit that was different from mine, so what? He never exhibited any sort of depression/craziness; we spent countless hours, together, alone, working on his solo albums. I was back in the NW when I heard he'd committed suicide. Talk about being blindsided! He left a wife and a young child. I think that's what caused me to leave the music business. I don't listen to his records anymore, tho great, it's still too depressing after all these years.
