R.I.P. JAY REATARD
This is very sad. Garage rocker Jay Reatard died in his sleep last night. He was 29 years old. His most recent album Watch Me Fall was named the #13 best album of 2009 by Spin Magazine.
This is a statement from Goner Records regarding Jay's passing - "It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our good friend Jay Reatard. Jay died in his sleep last night. We will pass along information about funeral arrangements when they are made public."
