RIP Jay Reatard

Jay Reatard has died, age 29. There's a detailed story about him here.

The above video is one of his poppier moments, but he's probably best remembered for his uncompromising garage rock, prolific output, and dedication to the music he made. RIP.

Really sad news. Not always the most likeable of guys, but he was a real talent, destined to achieve great things. He will be missed. R.I.P.
