Wow, that is terrible.

The local second hand music shop has had several of their albums in stock for about $10 each for a while now, at least four or five of them, I've always wanted to look into them.

Thanks for the news, Fluid.

It is never good news to hear of such a passing, but to go in this way adds an extra level of tragedy. Peace & love to his survivors. So sorry to hear about this.

Self-inflicted gunshot? Does that mean he shot himself on purpose or on accident?

RIP. Never got around to checking out Magellan, but they were one of the first names I saw when I discovered this site.

"Hour of Restoration" will always be a classic in my book. I am very sorry to hear about this.

Thoughts and prayers to Trent and the rest of the family.

apparently he was bloody suffering from brain tumors and ended his life...


anyway, this is a tragic loss of a very young man, no words to express these hard feelings...
