Can't Stand It

I actually gasped when I read this piece of truly lousy news: Jay Bennett, the founding longtime* member of Wilco who famously left the band during the recording of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, has died at the age of 45.

Rest in Peace, Jay.  Being There was always my favorite.

(Though YHF is a close second)

*Turns out that Bennett was not technically a founding member of the band, as he joined right after they recorded
