Silkworm drummer killed in car crash.

This sad news is already a few weeks old, but we just came across it today, via Cosloy's 12XU site, of all places:
Silkworm drummer Michael Dahlquist was killed in an automobile accident on July 14, in Chicago. The band's official site has a wonderfully full and touching obit at the top of the page, along with a link to a great Steve Albini appreciation that appeared in the Chicago Reader. To hear what's been lost, if only in part, go to the Touch & Go download page, which has three great Silkworm songs up [scroll down]; "(I Hope U) Don't Survive," despite the unfortunate name, showcases some typically great work from Dalquist.
Further: the T&G site has a stream of Silkworm's 2004 disk It'll Be Cool here [scroll down].
