Pretty mental - who the fuck jumps across elevator shafts? Still, :(
i imagine from the details that it was a somewhat short jump, but what sealed his fate was that his clothes got snagged on something just as he jumped.
"Fuchs is the second Maserati drummer to meet a tragic end. In 2005, then-drummer Mikel Gius was run down and killed as he rode his bike on a Sacramento street."
I think that band will need to invest in a drum machine now. They're only a bizarre gardening accident away from emulating the Tap.
I saw him play at their Cargo gig this year. He was a very good drummer.
donno if I would've been willing to jump out of a lift, but still guess it's too early to know what happened. And he was indeed quite a funky drummer :(
sounds like a pretty cool thing to try though, I mean the lift shaft wouldn't have been over jumping distance, so I guess he shouldn't have been wearing his shawl that day... :-)
and answer it in the body of your post.
He will be very missed
fuck me, that's cruel
this just gets more tragic
"He died as he lived. Dressed like a 12 year old from 1986."
i'm going to hell for laughing at that
