Terence Connor

Very sad to report that Total Slacker drummer Terence Connor has died following a hit-and-run. Our thoughts to out to Terence's family, friends and fellow bandmates. .

UPDATE: Gothamist confirms that Terence was killed on his bike in the "intersection of Metropolitan Avenue and Stewart Avenue at around 5:15 a.m. " And the band writes:

Were unbelievably heart broken, our drummer Terence Connor was killed in a hit and run accident while riding his bike early this morning.
Sending all our love to his family and friends.
THE SADDEST DAY -- WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, FOREVER...
RIP, Terence

So sad. Even if you didn't like the band, nobody deserves this.

BV - There's simply no accounting for all the racist hate speech that currently floods your site. I'm sure when you started this blog, you never envisioned that it would be used as an outlet for such total ignorance. That being said, thank you for removing the racist bile that was previously posted on this particular thread.

Sincerely,
A BV reader of many years

There is so many bad drivers that get away with hitting pedestrians & cyclists in NYC on a daily basis with the cops doing nothing to control traffic or ever pulling drivers over for running lights, drivers making bad fast right turns, etc.
Just sad.

Didnt know you or the band at all...Very sorry. RIP Bro.

Yeah, NYC has horrible drivers. But also a lot of stupid people on bikes. I've been hit twice by the latter.

Q: How to legally kill someone in NYC

Does anybody know if he was wearing a helmet? A friend (coincedentally also a drummer) was hit recently and would not have lived were it not for the helmet she was wearing.
Every time im in williamsburg/bushwick i see more and more cyclists that seem more concerned about showing off their asymmetrical haircut than protecting their head.
This is very very sad and my heart goes out to terrences family and friends.
Please please please if you ride, WEAR A HELMET. And get some lights too.

Terence was a great person and a great friend. He did not deserve this. This man would do anything for anyone. I was very heart broken to hear of his passing yesterday. He will forever be missed and loved. Prayers and deepest sympathy to his family and friends. RIP, love.
