"Fly as high as the sun sweet prince. It was a glorious ride." -The Dream is Dead

Jared Southwick

The Dream is Dead guitarist Jared Southwick passed away following more than a week in a Muncie, Indiana hospital with "a liver and kidney condition (and all the complications that come with it)". The 34 year-old guitarist was a member of Harakiri and The Dream is Dead along with bassist Jason McCash who went on to form The Gates of Slumber. The Dream is Dead's last long-player was the Escape Artist burner Hail The New Pawn.

The Dream is Dead was already scheduled to play their last show ever at Dudefest 2011 in Indiana. That show will go on as planned, with Coffinworm guitarist Carl Byers filling-in for Jared.

Jared Southwick, R.I.P., you will be missed, but your riffs will last forever.

"^asshole"

Who me? I admit the joke is not in very good taste but that's what first came to mind. I don't see you posting much better.

Nevertheless, RIP Jared.

What's up with all of these 34-yr-olds dying in the last couple of weeks? I'm 34 and it's kind of scary.
