Only the good die young...

RIP Jack... Image hosting by PhotobucketIt's always a bad feeling to go through when someone you know dies, even if you didn't know the person all that well.

Late this afternoon, Walski received a text message from his good friend, Rafil of 360deg Head Rotation, that Jack Nathan, their lead guitarist, was killed yesterday in a hit-and-run accident.

Walski will always remember Jack as a great musician and key ingredient in what made 360DHR a unique outfit.

He would have been celebrating his 41st birthday this coming October 6. Walski has no details on the actual accident, nor could he find any news pertaining to it in any of the online papers.

Update: (from {W a s t e d t a l e n t}) I spoke to Deepak, Jack’s close friend. Apparently Jack’s car broke down as he was heading back home from somewhere and he called his housemate to help. The line was bad, all I could understand was that Jack ended up cycling back home and that’s when he got hit. The line cut off at that point and I haven’t been able to reach Deepak since, probably busy at the wake.

Jack was a very kind soul, and Walski remembers the many times he offered to add a certain edge and fullness to the sparseness of Walski of Sound, a musical project that kind of fizzled in and out of existence. Although Walski did not know him very well, his generousity as a musician and producer was very evident.

Walski laments that the collaboration will never be.

Deepest condolences go out to Jack's family and to anyone and everyone who knew him. The funeral will be held tomorrow, September 25 2006 at the Kampung Tunku Crematorium.

Goodbye Jack - R.I.P. dude - keep on rocking wherever you may go...
