RIP Rowland S. Howard

Rowland S. Howard, guitar player for the Birthday Party, Crime And the City Solution and These Immortal Souls and also a solo artist, died on December 30th waiting for a liver transplant. He was an enormous influence and inspiration for me and many others around these parts, as close to an idol as we could have. Rest in Peace Rowland, we'll remember you always.
