Someone please tell me the rumors of Jeff Austin committing suicide are false… please tell me this isn’t true. I don’t wanna believe it until something official is announced. I fucking hate rumors.

Jeff Austin, thank you beyond words for introducing me to not only bluegrass, but the idea of how far out music can go. One of the first concerts I saw was a Yonder Fillmore show. Always a shining light who was the most talented frontman I’d ever seen at getting a crowd going.

Rest In Peace Jeff Austin, you coked out punk fuck of a mando player. You helped these legs learn to dance. Another living legend gone. Sleep easy King Ebeneezer, the sharp dressin motherfuckin king of evil.

Hopefully the Jeff Austin rumors are false. R.I.P. Mountain Tracks Volume 3 & all his early Yonder stuff was a gateway to bluegrass & jamgrass for me & many others I’m sure.
