The internet is abuzz with rumors of Jay Reatard’s death. It looks like it may have started at the GONER Message Board. Now BrooklynVegan is running with it.  I’ll try to keep this puppy updated as well.

UPDATED 4:16 EST
Wow, looks like it’s true.

Memphis police have opened a death investigation, spokesman Jennifer Robinson said. Lindsey was found around 3:30 a.m. in his bed, Robinson said.

“Yeah, it’s true,” friend Alicja Trout said. “I don’t know much about it yet, because I haven’t been able to get in touch with the police.”

Added Eric Friedl of Goner Records: “Yeah. He was found at his house. That’s all I know right now.”

Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of his music or his attitude it’s absolutely tragic when anyone under the age of 30 dies. Here’s a video of Jay playing live outside the Sailor Jerry store in Philly.
