A death in the family

Mike Schnieders, known by many as just "Schnieders", who many of those on tour have known since he was a child touring with his father, passed away Monday the 16th at 1:30am from heart failure and breathing complications. He was 32 years old. He'd endured two heart surgeries in the past year and had fought so hard to stay with us. He attended countless shows in his life and practically lived on lot for long periods of time, wherever the music was playing was home to him. You are his family and so I wanted to pass this along to you and to everyone who was hoping to see him in July. He will be with us in spirit all weekend you can be sure. He was buried with many roses and multiple sets of wings and attended by hundreds of family and friends. Thank you all who came to the funeral and have extended your love during this tragic time. We love you more than words can tell, Mike.

Gratefully yours,
Whisper/Liz (wife of mike Schnieders)

Our poet has left us.

RIP Rock Scully, what a guy. The heart of Gold band must have needed a manager. Jerry, John and Rock together again.

So sorry to learn of the passing of this guy, whose sax work on Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street is one of my favorite things of all time.

RIP Robin

Our Captain of Laughter has left us all a bit depressed, wish he could've left us laughing but depression is rough. I could tell you all about it but it would just make you depressed.

I'm just a believer that things will get better

Good while he lasted. A very sad day indeed, Bob Weir cancels all remaining 2014 concerts and 2015 Jamaica show with furthur. You will be missed Bobby, it must have been difficult for you to reach this decision, who has been touring and playing on the road for 50 years. I know that playing in the band is your life and without it we hope you can find peace and stay with us for many many more years.
As I have said before, I don't care if you never play again, just please take care of yourself for your own sake and that of your family, they need you more than any of us fans.
I do not want to see your name on this thread now or in the near future.

Captain my Captain

Funniest man who ever lived, fastest mind in the world, I don't believe in what they all say about suicide, I know you are in Heaven. Lots of thunder last night, it was all the angels laughing.
