Jay Reatard...RIP

Wow...that stinks!
Yeah, 29 years old! It makes no sense. R.I.P.
"He died at 3.30 am while he slept and still unknown causes of death."

Very strange...
Who is this Jay Reatard? I'm sorry for your loss.
He was a garage/punk rocker getting more and more popular over the last few years. He was recently opening up for The Pixies. I think he had a really cool voice very reminiscent of Pete Shelley from The Buzzcocks.
