This is heartbreaking.

RIP good sir.

If you read that thread closely, it looks like "uncledaddy" was an imposter/stalker from another message board, not the real deal. Just to be clear..

RIP, again. Damn.

Really? Shit. I posted that before I had my coffee...

The guy in that picture looks a lot like the picture of Brian in the obituary (minus the goatee and mustache), so I thought it was him.

Edit: I get it now--it was a troll posting a picture of Brian.

This sucks. I kept hoping it would turn around, that he's just too busy living his life.
His band, Van Vranken, were really good. They had a myspace with the songs on it. I liked it a lot. I think they had to remove the songs (or delete the profile altogether) because of some copyright bullshit.

RIP, Rocker.

I read the title of this thread and thought that at first it was a joke. What the hell. Unreal. Like I said, prayers, RIP.

RIP, Rocker654.

You knew a tremendous amount about the Minneapolis scene, gig etiquette and rock in general and you generously shared a great deal of it with us. You were one of the people who made this place what it is: great.

Thanks.

This is a bringdown, but at the same time, we have closure on what happened to him.

RIP.

I'm very sorry to hear this.

I always liked reading what he had to say here. He seemed both nice and cantakerous.

Requiescat, Brian.

Is this a private thing or is an Andrew from the forum also a Van Vranken alumnus?

Brian's passing depressed me today, and I didn't even know him personally. It's such a shame.

I'm just thinking out loud, but what if, the next prfbbq could be dedicated to him? It would be a nice gesture, I think.
