Caspian's Chris Friedrich Dead
This is a bummer, and some of you may be fans of Caspian. I know I think they’re decent.
The band’s bassist Chris Friedrich passed away on Sunday, according to the band’s social networking sites.
“We write to you today with heavy hearts and indescribable sadness to tell you that our bass player, Chris Friedrich, died unexpectedly Sunday afternoon,” says Caspian.
“We have lost a close friend, a true brother, and a presence that can never be replaced in any of our lives.”
Added the band: “Chris epitomized the heart and soul of Caspian, and in our own ways — both individually and collectively — dedicate ourselves to honoring his memory. We ask for privacy. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
There will be a show honoring Chris’ memory this Saturday (August 31) at The Engine Room in Manchester, New Hampshire.
“This is a benefit show for a friend of Chris’ who is seeking funding for a lung transplant,” says the band.
“Chris was instrumental in putting this show together, and is the only way we know how to honor his memory at this time. You can find more information in our events section for this performance.
We love you all so very much.”
