    Rest In Peace, Alain Ballaud

    As reported by Udi Koomran; a hugely important part of Shub Niggurath’s sound, as their bassist, has died.

    Steve, I copy from wiki: "Shub-Niggurath was an avant-rock/zeuhl band from France founded in 1982 by Allan Baullaud, and remained active until Baullaud's death from cancer in 1995."

    What's going on here? (the misspell on the wiki page is not mine)

    Udi's post certainly looks like it was a recent death.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Udi contacted me.
    I explained to Udi that in American English one would more accurately say “Remembering”. By saying Rest In Peace, it is implied that someone has just died.

    But it is not a hard rule.

    Anyway, really MY misunderstanding.

    the funny thing is that I would trust you or any PE member more than a wiki page with misspellings of the name involved

    One of not-so-particularly-many bands actively hailing the memory of Ballaud were Fort Worth's very own Yeti, whose keyboardist Doug Ferguson indeed himself collapsed frm a fatal cardiac arrest during rehearsals.

    Their Things to Come album was indeed dedicated to Ballaud, linernotes adding "Vive le Musique!" in his homour. And -BOY- did the influence show...

    This puts me in mind of when there was a whole rash of such RIP posts, for people who had passed away years earlier, because I think it was Facebook who got into the habit of putting death anniversaries into everyone's news feeds, so you'd see something like "RIP Mitch Mitchell", even though he had passed away several years earlier, and so there'd be a whole rash of "RIP Mitch Mitchell" threads, arriving however many years after the fact.
