In decidedly terrible and sad news, former Rogue Wave bass player Evan Farrell died December 23rd as a result of injuries he suffered in an apartment fire in Oakland, CA. There’s a news piece on Billboard.com with more details here.

To make an already awful situation worse, Evan leaves behind a wife and two kids. A memorial fund has been set up through PayPal to help his family get through this time. You’ll find that here. Please donate if you’re able.

Some remembrances of Evan can be found at the links following:

From his friends at Secretly Canadian

From Zach on the Rogue Wave blog

Our hearts go out to Evan’s family and his many friends.
