I’ve posted this video of the Austin supergroup Heybale before, but I’m reposting it because I got word (via Miss Leslie) that Gary Claxton, the fellow nailing the vocal on “Wine Me Up” below, passed away earlier today. And here I was thinking it might almost be time for another Heybale album. No fair, world.
No word on cause of death, but may he rest in peace. Our thoughts are with the family.
Update: Austin360 reports Claxton took his own life. Sad.
This is as good a time as any to treat yourself to some good Heybale music and swag.
