RIP John Klemmensen, original trumpet player for the Seven Deadlies

This past weekend we lost a dear friend, and an original member of my band the Seven Deadlies. John Klemmensen passed away on April 30th. I got the news minutes before my performance last Sunday at Murphys Irish Pub and it shook me pretty hard. We hadn't had much contact since my move to California and I had no idea he was having any health problems. Over the past week, I've been in touch with many close friends, sharing memories, and reveling in his talents. John was a complicated man, but one thing I know is that he would want us all to continue partying in his memory. You can hear John playing trumpet on our song "Carpenter" here.

Please take some time to watch the videos below. He was a songwriter of immense talent and I hope his music will continue to reach those who need to hear it.
