    I feel really bad because I just heard about this and I already missed the funeral (I am not in touch with many people from my old school). A friend from highschool and the first musician I had ever played with died last Sunday the 20th in a motorcycle wreck. I hadn't seen him in about a year, but I still remember him just like in highschool. It seems he was still playing music in a band that was doing pretty well (http://www.avingtonmusic.com/).

    I still remember that first day when we locked in playing "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters. Chris on drums and me playing guitar and singing. It was such an incredible rush and we were both ecstatic. I played with him all through highschool in our band program. He was a great musician and a great friend. He always had a passion for the extreme though. When the movie Jackass came out there he was mimicking the stunts (and pretty well I must add). He had such a persona that it's incredibly hard to realize he's gone. I keep remembering how he always had energy and always pumped me up when it was time to play music.

    RIP Chris Cravens.
