RIP Paul Hester - Crowded House

Paul Hester, Crowded House drummer, committed suicide.

http://www.undercover.com.au/news/20...aulhester.html

He was such a clown live, its sad to now know he was a depressive type. But then the fun ones often are.

RIP

FUCKING RIP

Why? why? why?

What a waste.

That is a shame, I listened to them a lot in the mid 90's at school.


RIP

Paul Hester R.I.P.

It started out as a rumour yesterday, but sadly I've seen confirmation now. It appears that former Crowded House drummer Paul Hester has taken his own life.

I heard the rumour yesterday, but did not want to believe it (and also couldn't find any confirmation). Sadly, I did read a confirmation today.

Indeed, why?

One of the best ever concerts I attended was Crowded House at the Belvoir Amphitheatre. I had seen them before at the Entertainment Centre but the night of the Belvoir was something else entirely.

The Belvoir is an a limestone ampitheatre in the Swan Valley. Cars parked on the paddock, and we sat on the grass. The night was still, the sound carried. In the ghost gum tree sat a few kookaburras who joined in singing with Crowded House. The band quietened to allow the Kookaburras to participate.

Guitars, kookaburras, drums, kookaburras, crowd cheering and feeling one with the universe, all together, in a paddock, in the middle of nowhere.

Kookaburras laughing, the crowd laughing, Crowded House laughing, Paul Hester laughing.

FUCK!

Why?

Damn it,,,, I can´t believe this

Crowded house may be the band i cherish the most. The soundtrack to my soul.
Neil Finn´s angel voice, Nick Seymours melodic bass and Paul Hesters beautiful background vocals and energetic drums.
This is indeed a sad sad sad day,,, Crap

I dont even know what to write

This truly breaks my heart

R.I.P Paul Hester

OMG

From the outside, he seemed to have it all, but I guess something was missing or not right.

His poor young family.

RIP

I still cannot believe this very sad news, (I am not doubting it).

I cannot find anything on the (web) news wires. Okay it is Sunday and the Easter weekend.

Like Michael Hutchence, you believe these people have it all.

So very very sad.

I have no idea what to say....

Such a terrible waste.

Crowded House - a fantastic band. Great music and brilliant live.

I hope he has found peace.
