Rest In Peace, Rogue Wave Bassist Evan Farrell

2007 ended with some tragic music news: Rogue Wave bassist Evan Farrell died Dec. 23 from injuries suffered in a fire. The Oakland apartment caught fire due to a space heater. Farrell was 33 years old.

Articles and blog posts fondly commemorating the musician have been popping up a lot today, from Whitney Pastorek's personal statements on Popwatch to Dan Coleman's touching post on the Bloomington Herald Times. A memorial fund has been started via PayPal to benefit Farrell's two sons.

As a farewell, I've posted the video for one of my favorite Rogue Wave songs "Publish My Love" after the jump. To watch and listen,

Evan was one of the funniest guys I've ever met. It is the saddest thing to think of his young family moving forward without him. We were lucky to know him through his music and I feel doubly lucky to have known him a little while as a friend.

Evan was a sweet, sweet soul. Whenever I'd pop in to see friends at the place he lived in Oakland he was always happy to hang out, converse, and say something hilarious to make us laugh. Plus, he was just a damn fine musician. I am so sad for his wife and kids....
