Jay Reatard

That Ty Segall post from yesterday got me to reminiscing about one of the indie scene’s most recent fallen heroes.  James Lee Lindsay, Jr., better know as Jay Reatard, died in his sleep on January 13 of last year from an apparent overdose.  He was a prolific singer and songwriter, putting out countless albums and EP’s since 1999.  He was a leader in the garage rock scene and was just coming into his own as a solo artist before he met his tragic end.  Here are a couple of videos to remember him by.
