Very sad day. I know a few of his band mates, the love runs strong through that band, I've seen first hand this love and have always admired it.
Such a really small thing really, but one memory I have always smiled at, one of my 90s bands did a number of openers with them, last one was one of their secret shows, it was buffalo a theatre. It was wild, knowing a few days prior but not allowed to say a word, I kept my promise
Anyway, walking down the theatre aisle he was walking up toward me I thought, oh wow there is good downie... he walked right for me shook my hand and said hey Tim! how are you, and wanted to sit and chat. I barely met him twice. He was someone who took the time to remember everyones name, and spend time talking with everyone, never once got the sense he was entitled and/or star crap etc. I've heard people say it but, nope, he was not.
He was one of the good guys.
