Biscuit update

I wrote last week about the passing of Randy “Biscuit” Turner. The Statesman had a follow-up article on Sunday. (Beware to anyone reading this more than a week after the article was published as the Statesman has the dumbass policy of only allowing free access to the past week’s articles. However, if you’re an Austin resident and have a library card, you can get access to much older stuff from the library site. If anyone wants more details, leave a comment and I’ll tell you how to get to the archives.)

I attended the impromptu wake at Pedazo Chunk Friday night. I’ve got a few photos that I still need post. I’ll link them tonight. I got there about an hour and a half after it started and didn’t stay long because my son got antsy. A lot of the details can be gotten from the Statesman article, but from what I could see, Chris Gates was the only Big Boys member in attendance.

The official memorial service for Biscuit will be held in his hometown of Gladewater, TX. this Saturday. The word is that an Austin celebration of Randy’s life is being organized for sometime in September. Stay tuned to the Chronicle website for more information as it becomes available.

Update: Jon links another Biscuit remembrance from Ed Ward.

Update 2: Outgoing Austin metblogger Wixlet remembers Biscuit as well.
