RIP Frank Navetta

"We're very sorry to announce that founding member of the Descendents, and close friend Frank Navetta passed away on October 31, 2008 after becoming ill over the course of a few days. This is obviously a huge loss for the Descendents family. His contribution to the band, and to music in general can not be overstated. Frank will be truly missed. We will share information about memorial services when we find out." -

This is fucking heartbreaking. What might have once been a fun pass time to Frank Navetta ended up shaping my adolescence, not to mention the way I play and write music. I hope everyone who reads this blog will celebrate his work with me.

Even I love the Descendents, so this does indeed suck. He probably wasn't even that old.

On a totally unrelated note, the word verification for this comment is noisear...
