Sean Costello: 1979-2008

Though many people may not know the name, Blues guitarist Sean Costello died on Tuesday. He's know to me primarily from a member of Mrs. Mosley's family being a part of his band for quite awhile. The cause of death is currently unknown, but Mrs. Mosley said the articles made it sound "Heath Ledger-esque".

I only got to hear the guy play once. It was at this shack in the middle of the woods just outside Tallahassee. I'll be the first to admit that I don't know much about Blues, but it struck me that it a very fitting place to hear my first Blues concert. The guy was good, and it's a damn shame for him to die at 29. Here's to him.
