Funny how your life can be cut short just in an instant like that.


May he rest well...

Horrible news
WOY were a great band, their Earache debut from last year is amazing. I met David when Woods played in NYC and he was cool as fuck. Sometimes life can be far too cruel.

Rest in peace brother.

One thing to end your own life... but to involve an innocent passerby to fulfill your own death wish is just plain selfish.

This sucks, I have been listening to these guys since they first put out a song in Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles many years ago, I was so proud of them :(

Thanks for everything David, thanks for reminding me to shed the deadwood
