I first want to start off by passing my condolences to the friends, family and other members of Women on the loss of Christopher Reimer. Chris played guitar in the band and last night passed away in his sleep. I’m not going to pretend that we were super close or anything like that but my band had played with his and given how small the music world both of our bands worked with the same people are crossed paths with each other a few times and shared a couple conversations. They were a great band and I think it was pretty clear to anyone who heard them that the members would go on to do other amazing things in music, so this is a loss for all fans of their music.
R.I.P. Christopher Reimer.
(We recorded the show before we heard the news, so we don’t make any mention of it.)
On The Wedge, this week I go to the Pinball Cafe and play pinball and talk shit about music… one of the simplest pleasures I have on earth. Sometimes I get so caught up in the bullshit that I forget about the simple things in life and then something happens and I realize how good life is at times. Expect to see new videos by Skrillex, Jack White, Cults, St. Vincent, The Shins, and so many more.
The Wedge airs every Thursday at 2:00 AM EST on MuchMusic. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @MUCHTheWedge.Tweet
