    I guess it had to happen at some point, but he seemed like Keith Richards; a rock and roll cockroach who would survive Armageddon. Fare thee well, sweet prince.

    Perhaps this is just a Laurie Anderson performance art piece.

    This is sad.
    I miss talking to TomAz.

    We all do. I live in the same city as him (unless he relocated) and rumor has it that at 3:15am if you listen closely and its really really quiet you can hear him telling you to go fuck yourself.

    I think it's less a surprise and more that he truly touched a piece of many people's lives.

    I thought the same. I know it was likely, but no.... not Lou! This one hurts.
    Later, Lou- thanks for saving me with Rock and Roll.

    Thank you Lou for the amazing set at ATP Long Beach. And yes I dumped my Coachella ticket this past year because you couldn't make it.
