I knew Tim Mooney for over 20 years. As many Red House Painters' fans may know, American Music Club was very helpful in giving us our start. Later on, Tim played drums on my first solo album, Rock'n' Roll Singer, and then on Sun Kil Moon's Ghosts Of The Great Highway. We shared many long days and hours together. Tim was a peaceful, patient, and incredibly talented person. The last time I saw Tim was in 2009, in Petaluma, he was having ice cream with his daughter. He was as happy and content as ever... I've been overwhelmed with memories of Tim since learning of the news yesterday [June 14th]. My heart goes out to his family, his many friends, and to the members of AMC. -[Mark Kozelek]Rest in Peace to Tim Mooney, member of Sun Kil Moon, Sleepers, American Music Club, Negative Trend and others.
