Traded in my Bitchin Camaro for a Town Car

I just heard that the bassist for the Dead Milkmen committed suicide. I heard the news, of course, on a webmaster board. I knew these were trying times to be a punk rock girl, but I guess even more trying to be a punk rock boy. Anyone have any idea why?

I remember going to see them when I was in school. They played a frat there. Nice close-up venue. I even remember what I wore that night because my friends teased me about it. Friends of mine drove across six states to hang with me and go that night. Wow.

Everyone I am still in touch with from that time period seemed to be oddly pensive last night. Some kind of zodiac phase of the moon thing I guess.
