R.I.P. David Berman ~ The Silver Jews

Postby Flower » 08 Aug 2019, 13:29

We first heard the Silver Jews on either a Mojo or Uncut "free" CD and immediately picked up Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea.

R.I.P. and Shalom David. :(

The chatter suggests suicide.
Drag City isn’t commenting on the manner of death.

This is sad. 52years old, still had lots to say. I was delighted to see the Silver Jews in Edinburgh a number of years ago. The guy had a complicated backstory with his dads work casting a large unpleasant shadow. RIP David. You were a great writer.
