Damn fine drummer for Beasts of Bourbon and Kim Salmon & the Surrealists. Wrote the lyrics for the Beasts' The Low Road (written about his friend and rhythm section partner, the late Brian Hooper).

Ah, man. That sucks. He and Hooper were a great team - hopefully they're reunited and kicking some poor guitarist's ass right now. What was COD?

At least he got to make one more Beasts record (for those that don't know: Still Here, done in tribute to the late Spencer P. Jones and Hooper, under the name the Beasts). Man, being in the BOB takes a heavy toll, apparently.

Update: it's an old story, done almost two years ago, following the deaths of Jones and Hooper, but it's got some reflection on the part of Tex Perkins: here

That's a nice piece (which I missed at the time). Haven't seen COD mentioned, just the usual at home, surrounded by family etc.
I do know he was still working, on a couple of soundtracks for independent film.
