RIP Alex Chilton And Bruce Roehrs of MRR

Two in one day. Damnit, damnit damnit!!!!!!!!!!! I never met Alex, but was always stoked on his music. The Letter by the Box Tops was a kennyhel77 fave for a long time. Big Star was a band that just about every late 80's Alt Rock band dug.

However, the second person that passed today, I knew. Bruce was a huge music fan that would be at almost any SF punk show. Dude was cool as hell!!!! He wrote for MRR and had a column where he would write about The Forgotten and all of our buddies in other bands, Alot! Bruce was a fun person to have a pint with and shoot the shit. What I love about his photo is the total defiant look, I will miss him. RIP Bruce!

  1. Bruce was the main (and sometimes only) reason I'd still pick up the occasional copy of MRR. Sad news. My condolences you, his family and friends.
