I actually want to listen to their stuff, funny as it sounds. I'm just a bit uneasy about watching anything of the band's that I have on tape right now. I saw their "Something So Strong" video earlier this evening, and it just weirded me out like nothing else, so I don't know if I want to watch anything else of theirs right now.

Oddly enough, last night before I heard the news, I was listening to a bunch of Split Enz/Crowded House related stuff. Then I went onto this one board related to the band and everything, and I heard the news, and...oh, my god. It just floored me. It's still not fully registering.

This is the second time someone from a band I love has died so young and so tragically-there was Howie Epstein from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers back in February 2003, and now there's this. And that just really sucks.

I can't imagine what the rest of his band members must be going through right now...I just feel so bad for them, and for his family. And considering that this happened to a friend of my family's last year, this is just hitting a little too close to home, which doesn't help.

It's just so crummy, it really, really is.

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone is a fan of Crowded House too and wanted to say something about drummer Paul Hester who apparently committed suicide on Friday.

I had the pleasure of meeting Paul back in the early 90's (maybe it was 88 or 89??) - I was dj'ing at a local club and Crowded House was playing in town. After the gig a friend of mine brought Paul down to the club and up to the dj booth. Very friendly and genuine character. It's really a shame. R.I.P.

Such a shame... shades of INXS & Hutch all over again, huh?

I hope his soul will find the peace it was looking for and I hope his family can find the peace they'll need to get through this.

I am so sad about the news. I am a huge Crowded House /Enz/Finn fan. What a loss.

Wonder if Bono will say anything tonight. I have always wondered if there was a CH/Finn connection between them. We shall see.

They mentioned him on Triple J radio yesterday afternoon, and given how many years it's been since Crowded House were around, I kind of guessed it was a death as soon as they got as far as the name. No good at all.
