Source:so i tried to post this yesterday but just couldn’t get it out. Maybe some of you heard and maybe some of you are just hearing it now…but the creative man behind Songs: Ohia, and the Magnolia Electric Company died passed away this weekend. I really admired this man and his music. it meant a lot to me and happily i was able to pass it on to many close friends of mine who i am sure will also be nothing short of devastated.
I tried so hard to spread this mans music around that i must have sounded like a traveling mormon trying to convert people. i couldn’t help it. his music just touched me, spoke to me and had a way of just sounding so fucking authentic, and true, it made my heart hurt when i listed to it when i was sad. if i was in a good mood, it pumped me up like a good Warren Zvevon song always does. I went to see him every chance i could when he would come to town. I made new friends because of his music, i really dont have a bad thing to say about him at all, cept i’m sad to see he let Alcohol take it all away.
I remember one of my first days at MySpace i crept up to the person who would spotlight bands once in a while before it was commonplace and gently dropped a cd on her desk and ask that she kindly listen to it in hopes she would post his mug up on the page and get more people to listen to him. like i said i wanted EVERYONE to love him like i did.
i made my wife shoot his band for free because i wanted my two worlds to collide. my love of a good woman and my love of great music. im seriously going to miss you man.
Goodbye and farewell.
