Nick Sanderson R.I.P.

I am deeply saddened by the news that former Gun Club drummer and friend Nick Sanderson passed away earlier this week from lung cancer. I will always remember Nick not only as one of the very best drummers I have played with, but as a hilarious friend with an askew sense of humor that helped keep my sanity on endless tours. My heart goes out to his wife Romi Mori,son Sidney, and all family and friends of Nick. One of these photos is of me and "Sandy" clowning around in Hansa Studios in Berlin during the "Mother Juno" sessions, and the other is a publicity still of the Gun Club from that time as well, with Romi Mori, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, Nick Sanderson, and myself. R.I.P. Nick, thanks for all you have contributed to those touched by you.
