Happy Birthday / RIP Douglas Brooks

Today would have been Douglas Brooks' 54th birthday. The victim of lung cancer, he died on 27 January 2009. We have only just learned of the passing of our dear friend, with whom we were close, especially between 1980 and 1982, when we played together, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a rock band called Entropy Quaint.

Rest in peace, mortal friend; and happy birthday to your immortal soul.
