Yesterday, Pre)thing lead guitarist, singer and songwriter Rust Epique died of a heart attack in his home in Las Vegas. He was only 35 years old. In addition to playing with Pre)thing (formerly known as Rustandthesuperheroes), Epique was a former member of Crazy Town. Epique signed to V2 in 2002, much to the excitement of the labelís top brass, who at the time called Rustandthesuperheroes "perhaps the most groundbreaking artist to grace music in the last 30 years."
Ahhhhh, dammit. I listened to his greatest hits album almost exclusively when I first discovered his music. If you don't like his rendition of "Funky Broadway", then what DO you like?!? Remembering Pickett's "Wicked" Ways
