While I'm sure this thread was made with all the best of intentions, it would be helpful to everybody if you linked to a reason why this certain man's death is of interest.

Peace

Memphis garage rocker Jay Reatard, who broke out last year thanks to Watch Me Fall, has died at the age of 29, Reatard’s label Matador Records confirmed. According to Memphis’ Commercial Appeal, Reatard was found dead in his Memphis home at 3:30 am this morning and reportedly died in his sleep. “We are devastated by the death of Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., aka Jay Reatard. Jay was as full of life as anyone we’ve ever met, and responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist,” Matador Records said in a statement. “We’re honored to have known and worked with him, and we will miss him terribly.” Watch Reatard perform “Blood Visions” last month in Atlanta in the video above.

Reatard was the man's last name. He was a guitar player and singer. I'm not very familiar with his music but can we please cease with the jokes about his name? The man just died and he probably has some fans and who knows - maybe even family on ATS. Some respect for the dead please.

No, it wasnt his last name. Read the article I posted above. It is his stage name, meant to get the reaction it is getting.
