RIP Jay Bennett (Formerly of Wilco)

yankeeGot some sad news over the long weekend: Jay Bennett passed away in his sleep at 45 years of age, cause of death unknown. I was fortunate to catch Jay in the post-Wilco era, on tour with Ed Burch and members of Centro-matic, a few years back at the Troubadour. DeRogatis @ Chicago Sun-Times has the full story, including a statement from Jeff Tweedy. Our thoughts go out to Jay’s family and friends.
