That's a shame. A very talented guy. I heard Dave Mustaine was all upset over it. I'm not kidding. He rated Crowded House as a favorite.

"There is freedom within...
There is freedom without...
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup...
There's a battle ahead...Many battles are lost...
But you never see the end of the road while you're traveling with me...
Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over...
Hey now, hey now, when the world comes in...
Let it come, let it come to build a wall between us...
You know they won't win".

Sorry if I got those lyrics wrong, but when I heard this news, it was the first thing that came to mind.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff...

R.I.P to a great 80s musician.

How sad.
He seemed so full of joy and mischief everytime he appeared in an interview or in their videos.
How strange.
I recently bought their greatest hits compilation and have been playing it ceaselessly, thinking "I'd forgotten just how good these guys were." I've discovered I'm listening more to the less well known songs that are absolute gems like "Four Seasons in One Day," "Fall at Your Feet," and "Pineapple Head." Now their music, which always felt upbeat no matter what the subject, will be forever tinged with sadness. :frowning:

Ugh.

I sure hope we get more details. What makes a guy supposedly off himself whilst walking his dogs in a park?

I agree with you re how he appeared playful and michievous in videos, John N.

Where's the photo from, Henry G.?

The spirit's more important, John K., and I'm with you there. But a minor correction to the letter: "They come, they come/To build a wall between us."

I was just spinning my Crowded House DVD-A on Monday, wishing Capitol would release more of the band's records on the format.

Ugh.

Surprised nobody mentioned it earlier.

Been listening to their stuff all week actually, so it was weird when I saw that in the news the other day. Supposedly he was in treatment for nearly 8 years for depression.

RIP
