I guess this is a bit off topic, but David Longdon, lead singer of prog rock Big Big Train has died of injuries sustained in an unspecified accident :


The drumming connection is that he was a band mate, and I think good friend, of Nick D'Virgilio, who many know through his role at Sweetwater. I don't know Nick at all, but admire his drumming greatly. I would imagine this must have been gut wrenching news for him.

I have posted this link several times at the least excuse because I think it is a spectacular piece of music. So here it is again, showing both David and Nick in wonderful form :

It's got to be frustrating at some level for Nick, having secured some legitimate street cred as a drummer in a band loved by musicians, to be more well known for being the face of Sweetwater percussion.

Wow. Very sad. He was incredibly talented. And yes, I feel bad for Nick too, great drummer and seems like a really good guy.
