Michael Dahlquist, 2 others killed in car crash

from The Perfect Face For Radio:

"Yesterday around lunch time Doug Meis, the drummer for Exo and the Dials; John Glick, the guitarist for the Returnables; and Michael Dahlquist, the drummer for Silkworm all died in a car accident in Skokie. They were coming back to work from lunch and were hit by someone speeding while talking on a cell phone (which is now illegal in Chicago)."

What a waste. I'd like to be able to have some kind of point with this post but I don't except to say that this is very upsetting. Silkworm is one of my favorite my bands. Best wishes those who died and to the families they have left behind. Below is the first Silkworm song I listened to after I heard the news.

Apparenty the the woman who caused the accident was trying to commit suicide. She now faces three counts of first degree murder. Link

The Chicago Tribune has an in depth story online about the deaths in which Silkworm bassist Tim Midgett says the band is now over and that Dahlquist "can't be replaced". Link
