    Keyboard player for Edie Brickell and member of Sorta. Also played with Paul Simon (Brickell's husband) and Charlie Sexton.

    An incredible waste.

    Paul Simon is Edie Brickell's husband?... I did not know that

    It was a good "get" by the writer - getting several quotes from the mother.
    Interesting story and good work by the publication, turning out copy on short notice.

    "An incredible waste?"

    Perhaps if he didn't get sloshed, gash his hand open, punch his girlfriend repeatedly in the face, hit her in the back, chase her around the house, get locked out, then go beating and banging on a neighbor's door in the middle of the night despite them asking him to stop...he'd still be alive.

    I'd consider it a waste precisely FOR all those reasons. Now want to call it a tragedy? Then it's more appropriate to use your reasons. Talented musician loses everything, including his life, because of a drunken rage. That IS a waste.

    And I really feel bad for the homeowner who popped him. This guy's got to live with that for the rest of his life.

    Bad news for everyone.

    His death is not a waste. A waste is when someone is someone who shouldn't be dead.

    Anyone like that? I shed no tears for.

    What a sad story. I feel bad for everyone involved, especially the guy who shot him.

    He thought he was just trying to scare a burglar, but he was 6-5.

    Shooting blind through a door -- not a good idea.

    Getting raving drunk and hitting your girlfriend -- not a good idea, either.

    Lucky man - she was extremely pretty, around a quarter century younger than him and about half a foot taller.
