Jay Reatard is dead

Recommended Posts

Jeeeeeez, Christ, what was he, thirty or something? Maaan. Any word on causes?

No idea man, Wiki says he died in his sleep and had claimed to have flu like symptoms. Not sure how trust worthy that is, i'm sure a story will come out.

Found dead in his home, just been confirmed by Goner Records.

Well he's a "goner" now.......shame, someone that young !

edit: Actually reports his record label as "Matador" not Goner.....

See! The fact you needed to highlight Goner in big black letters as well as quote it! I love you, Telecaster Sam!

Yes, but he had released previously on Goner.

I've never heard of him.

Seriously?

Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr. (May 1, 1980 January 13, 2010), better known by the stage name Jay Reatard, was an American garage punk musician from Memphis, Tennessee. Lindsey was signed to Matador Records. He released recordings as a solo artist and as a member of The Reatards and Lost Sounds.

Nah, either have I.

Never liked any of his music, but it's a shame, in the way than anyone's death (especially at a relatively young age) is.

Me neither, reckon by his "rock name" he must have been quite high on the thickometer. still, hard times, my anecdotes to his nearest and dearest. somebody must give a fuck.

Don't really understand your first statement there. Are you saying that if your band/you as an artist have a - shock, horror! - funny/silly name, you're 'thick' ?

I don't really understand what you are saying, if someone chooses to go by a stupid nick name then we are not allowed to rip the piss?

It was a flippant comment, didn't realize it would upset you- If it did you need to get things in perspective.

Took me ages to work out what the fuck you'd changed. A fucking Z? To an S? Get out more, man. You should be out entertaining the womenfolk of Aberdeen, not fannying about with words. Spread your seed. :up:

Edit: Try not to spread the ginger one though.
