Nick Curran died today. Its very sad. He battled cancer for the past few years and it just kept coming back. The last time I saw him play was in Austin at the Continental Club while his cancer was in remission. He was so skinny but he could still play a mean guitar. He wasn't singing at that show. He was supposed to play Denver a few months later but his cancer had returned. Its sad to hear now that it claimed him.
Cancer sucks. It keeps taking great people too soon. Thats the second musician to die from cancer in the past few moths. Adam Yauch of The Beastie Boys died too. That one really, really sucks. The Beastie Boys were my childhood and my teen years and I never got to see them live, and now I never will.
Fuck you cancer! RIP Nick and Adam.
