R.I.P. MIIKA TENKULA
Full confession: Vince and I were not Sentenced fans. Speaking for myself, it’s not even like I hate the band or anything; I honestly don’t know enough about their music to make a judgement one way or the other. Shame on me, I know. There’s only so many hours in the day.
But a lot of you e-mailed us about the news that the band’s guitarist (and, apparently, primary songwriter), Miika Tenkula, has passed away at the age of 34. He obviously meant a lot to you guys and we certainly appreciate that. It’s always a tragedy when someone dies so young, but the fact that we’ve lost a musician whose art obviously touched a lot of people makes the sting that much sharper.
Here’s the band’s video for “Killing Me Killing You.” Hopefully it provides some catharsis for all the Sentenced fans out there…
