Paul Hester, R.I.P.

Blogger seems to have a beef with me. It failed to post this after I wrote it yesterday (March 28th), and just ate my most recent post. Argh.

My husband called me this morning to share the sad news that the drummer from Crowded House, a great & underappreciated band (in North America, anyway), had hanged himself in Melbourne over the weekend. The more I dwell on this, the more glum I get, so I'm going to try to dispell the gloom with a little happy reminiscing about the greatness of Crowded House (and affiliated acts Split Enz, and Neil Finn as a solo artist).

All Music Guide has a great biography of Crowded House, here.

    I too am devastated and as a close fan and follower of Crowded House, I had read that Paul suffered from depression for many years. In spite of this, he was the most life-affirming of people, with his wit, warmth and talent.
    RIP Paul xx

    I am also very sad about Paulo. He was such a lively soul, it's a real loss to the world.

    RIP Paul Hester
