Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

A Sad Personally Felt Passing

Many of you who read this blog regularly know that I've had a long friendship with Garfield Banks. I got to play bass and sing in a version of George Nipe III's band The Plague Dogs back in 2007-08 and Garfield was the drummer in that band. He also has drummed in the most recent (and perhaps the last?) line-up of Book of Kills. Of course, I've known Garfield since the early 2000s, since he has been involved with George's music making on and off for probably two decades now. Last evening Garfield's beloved father passed away after a long illness. I've lost both my parents, so I know how difficult it is and what he's feeling right now. I know you'll send your positive thoughts his way and if you're so inclined, say a prayer for him and his family. Thanks.
