MIKEY WELSH passed away nearly two months ago, but the tributes keep coming in for the fallen New England musician. First we posted a midnight-oil ode from Matty J of Boston rock dudes the Bynars, who open the WFNX Disorientation show with fun. December 12, and now comes this track from Asheville, North Carolina's CHAMPIONS ON SEA
The reaction to the passing of MIKEY WELSH was swift and immediate this past weekend. Social networking sites quickly spread the news of the 40-year-old artist and musician's unexpected death shortly after he was found in a Chicago hotel room Saturday afternoon, and online reactions and tributes began filtering in from Boston and beyond.
We started tonight's show with recognition of MIKEY WELSH, former Weezer bassist and longtime Boston rock and art scene veteran who died unexpectedly this weekend in Chicago. He was 40 years old. Boston Accents poured one out, and dedicated the first four songs of tonight's show to his memory and legacy.
