We were devastated to learn our friend Sam Williams of the Flying Karamazov Brothers (right) died last Friday night. We had only recently just spent time with him, recorded a podcast with him, and were looking forward to our next visit.

A great spirit has gone. We will miss him. Hear Sam's previous podcast chat about the Flying Ks here. (Length 19:51)
