Overly emotional drunk rambling about my sister’s late bandmate

Funny, I never posted the songs my sister and her band would cover in real-time on here before. I might’ve posted when they were going to reunite for a show, but that last show they did was the only time I ever posted the songs they were covering in real-time on this damn site, which ended up not letting me do much of because I had reached my post limitations or something.

Just who’d have thought that would be the last show they’d all do together before their bass player died a couple weeks ago? He was still up there performing while he was sick with the cancer that eventually killed him. What a trooper! And how did that last show my sister would ever do with him be the one time I tried to post their set in real time?

I didn’t know him as well as I would have liked, but like I said before, it’s hard not to feel sad for someone you’ve watched and listened countless times for so many years. My sister left the group years ago, but she remained close with all of her old bandmates. Especially him, who was one of the band’s founding members.

I don’t know why this is making me sad so much right now. It’s been over two weeks since he died. But then at the same time it’s still recent. Maybe I’m just overthinking. It’s just sad he had to go and reflecting on that last show of his just makes me think how life is full of unpleasant surprises and you just never know what moments you have of someone are going to be the last you have with them.
