We here at Baeble usually look forward to getting back into the swing of things on a Monday morning. But this morning brought with it some utterly tragic news from a band we here at Baeble think the world of. NME.com
is reporting that the body of John Pike – drummer for the Syracuse NY based band, Ra Ra Riot
has been found after he disappeared near an after-show party in Fairhaven MA early Saturday morning.
A search on foot and by air was underway by 4PM Saturday, and Pike’s body was found in seven feet of water in Buzzard’s Bay around 4PM Sunday.
This is truly saddening news to everyone here at Baeble. We remember Pike fondly from our PUSH PLAY
event back in February at The Canal Room
. We filmed both the band’s performance
that evening, as well as interviewed them for our Green Room
Baeble wants to extend its’ warmest sympathies to those who were deeply touched by Pike. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, bandmates, friends, and fans.
