Maserati and !!! Drummer Passes Away
Gerhardt "Jerry" Fuchs, the 34 year-old drummer for indie bands Maserati and !!!, passed away early Sunday morning, due to a tragic elevator accident. The drummer was attending a Williamsburg, NY benefit, when he and another elevator passenger's elevator car halted and he attempted to jump to the next floor. Fuchs' most recent work with Georgia-based psychedelic instrumental ensemble Maserati included a split LP, with Zombi released in early 2009, and rarities collection Passages out later this year. He'll be greatly missed.
That's a shame. I'm glad I had a chance to see them on before he was gone!
