A friend of Sound Effects wrote in to tell us that "Jon Erik, the bass player of Lenny & the Piss Poor Boys died unexpectedly last week. Noise Board regulars are putting together a bunch of benefits-- Jon Erik was a board moderator-- possibly known to more people in that role than as a musician. The admin took the board offline yesterday during his memorial service."
Sad news. There's a link to all pertinent boards here.
