Jack Rose (of Pelt) apparently died of either a heart attack or a brain aneurysm. Fella was only 38 years old. Pelt was an incredible band and his solo work was absolutely gorgeous. Sad times.

No idea who he is... but that guitar playing is gorgeous. I will have to look into Pelt. RIP.

Ayahuasca is generally considered their best album.

Oh fuck, what a bummer. I love this guy's music. Rage, if you're looking for more of this kind of stuff I'd recommend his solo work, particularly the albums "Kensington Blues" and "Two Originals of Jack Rose." Pelt is more of a drone band, but it also features this incredible style of guitar playing. "Empty Bell Ringing in the Sky" and their self titled album are good places to start. R.I.P.

i think he died from the sheer boredom of his own playing.

That's so sad. I think when he played Arthurfest he went up against Sunburned Hand of the Man. In retrospect, looksl ike I should have seen him.

I just heard about this. This blows. Kensington Blues used to be one of my go-to bus/subway albums when I had to commute.

I don't know much Pelt but I know and love his solo work; I know Andrew in particular was a big and infectious fan.

RIP
