Benjamin Curtis 1978-2013

Sad news that I just heard: Benjamin Curtis passed away yesterday, a casualty of cancer. He was only 35. I was a fan of both the Secret Machines and School of Seven Bells so it's a bit shocking to hear this news. I missed seeing the former but I did see the latter once. To commemorate his life, here are two clips. The first of Secret Machines playing "First Wave Intact." You can see Curtis shredding on guitar. His brother Brandon plays the keyboards and sings lead vocal.

Next is the completely different and beautiful "Windstorm" from the School of Seven Bells album Disconnect From Desire.
