Biscuit found dead

Wow. I’m in shock.

I was just reading Jon’s blog and saw the report that Randy “Biscuit” Turner, member of the legendary Big Boys and an Austin punk rock/art icon, was found dead yesterday in his home. Even more bizarre, there’s a cover story on him in this week’s Austin Chronicle which was released yesterday, apparently the day he died. The details are sketchy so far. He was in his late 40’s/early 50’s, which is pretty young to suddenly pass away.

I don’t know what else to say.

Update: Ray says that there’s supposedly a memorial planned for tonight at 8pm at Pedazo Chunk (S. 1st and Johanna).

    i’m in shock. we worked together for many years, and he was a good friend of mine…we just saw each other at CM south a few weeks ago. we’d go to the memorial if we were going to be in austin. who knows, maybe we’ll come up for it.
