I have been on vacation where I have been out of cell service and just found out about this. Very sad news as Mike was a great guy. I always looked forward to seeing him at the Chicago show. The show won't be the same without him and I valued all of his great Ludwig knowledge. R.I.P. Mike.

I have just been made aware that our own Mike Layton, long time member and valued Admin to the site was killed in a motorcycle accident last night.
Here is what I know. RIP my friend, man this is ugly.

"According to reports, Layton was operating a Harley Davidson motorcycle on US-601 near Lachicotte Road in Lugoff, when for unknown reasons, the bike went down around 7 p.m. Saturday.

Layton was pronounced dead of blunt force trauma injuries at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation."
Absolutely terrible news. RIP Mike

Oh boy. That just hit me like a ton of bricks. Mike offered me such great insight and advice into a couple of drums I had over the years. Such a shame.
