Jay Reatard @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Jay Reatard

Matador Records writes, “We are devastated by the death of Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., aka Jay Reatard. Jay was as full of life as anyone we’ve ever met, and responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist. We’re honored to have known and worked with him, and we will miss him terribly.”

NY Times confirms with a quote from Goner Records: “It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our good friend Jay Reatard. Jay died in his sleep last night. We will pass along information about funeral arrangements when they are made public.””

RIP Jay. This is a tragedy.

As previously posted in an interview I did with Jay in October, there is a short documentary on the man himself called “Waiting For Something”. Yes, he was only 29 years old and already had a documentary. Check it out below…
