so, one of the main guitarists and singers in stereolab died the other day, which really sucks. they were a great band that i liked a lot, and i never got to see them. if you haven't heard of them or haven't heard much of their music, i suggest you check it out: try searching for them on amazon or artistdirect.net to read about them and hear clips. they were pretty funky and kooky, and i enjoyed their music a lot. it seems as time goes on, bands i want to see break up or stop playing, like ben folds five, pavement, belly, and lots of others. i guess i should go see bands when they're in town and not wait around. i think that applies to everything too, not just concerts. we shall see.
