Well, That Sucks

Usted Lo Toma Fácil, El Hombre De Acido...

Just read a blogpost from his daughter that Rob "Acidman" Smith is dead. I never played the blogparent/blogchild game, but Rob's blog is one of the first I read on a don't-miss daily basis, and I sure wouldn't have started writing mine if I hadn't been hooked into the blogosphere by Rob and a few others.

Only met the man once, at the Austin blogmeet. I'd hoped to do so again at future meets. Never even heard the man play guitar.

Condolences to his son Quinton & daughter Sam. Your dad was one helluva guy, and he'll be greatly missed.
