RIP Randy Bewley...

Word in from various sources, both locally and online, that Pylon's Randy Bewley has passed away. This is... awful. He was an important part of the Athens music scene and I hope those than knew him better will offer tributes in the days to come. He was always a gentlemen when we spoke, and his absence will leave a hole in the local scene. I'm told that his family and bandmates were with him when he passed.
See the article at Pitchfork. The Athens Banner-Herald has more.
Please read Mike Turner's thoughts on Randy at the HHBTM blog. Mike and wife Leslie knew Randy well, and Mike's thoughts are touching.
Also see Athens local Lucas Jensen's article on Randy over at Idolator. It's loaded with info, videos, and comments about the man.
