This guy is actually a damn fine writer, especially for MTV.

While I never really like HH, this death sort of made me think about bands from that genre who talk about death and dying so "freely". Bands like From First to Last, The Used, AFI, and Alkaline Trio talk about death in a theatrical sense and use it as an image arbitrator. Now that one among the ranks has actually died, I wonder how this will change the way they feel about how they talk about death.

I do love me some Alkaline Trio though.

Bayside used to be very "dark" lyrically with many references to death and the like, and after Beatz passing much of it ceased.

This column is usually hit or miss, but this is probably the best I've read.

I was writing the related article about artists sharing their thoughts about him, and this quote from the AKAs really stood out to me:

"I'm going to do my best to celebrate his memories with a smile rather than to dwell on the awful facts that he was too young, too awesome and too good of a person to live so short."

That was really well written. Every point he talked about was very true and it just brough more light to how sad this actually is. The dying while following your dream part got me the hardest, its so fucking sad.

Great article. Surprised to see him feel that way about it, it makes him seem more human, and I think that's what a lot of writers are missing these days.

RIP Casey.

Like everyone else, I loved the article. i met Casey along with the other guys about 3 years ago on several occasions. i dont remember the specifics, but i remember how friendly and genuine he was. although i grew out of hawthorne heights, i still stood up for them because of what wonderful people they are. This news has devasted me. probaly because i actually sort of KNEW the guys and no one, especially them, should have to go through this.

I believe James did a fantastic job of putting into words what all of us are feeling about Caseys death...

"He was just another of those kids, the kind I see packed against the barrier at shows, the kind who can spot a fake a mile away, the kind who buy hoodies and talk sh-- about me on AbsolutePunk.net."

this was a great read. he hit it on the head with the fact that casey was like so many other people that we see at shows (on and off the stage). that is what strikes me about this death.
