SERGIO AVENIA (Sept. 23, 1964 - March 5, 2013)
Sergio and I moved to Seattle from Missoula thirty years ago this May in my
yellow Dart filled with his drums and my bass gear and little else. When
I stopped to pick him up, his Mom gave us a giant bucket of home fried
chicken, gave him a teary kiss and off we went into the great unknown.
I was lucky to learn to play my instrument with a great musician like
Sergio. He motivated our band,Deranged Diction to be tight and professional,
and he gave an original jazzy sound to our basic hardcore structures.
Sergio was a huge talent, as good of an cartoonist, piano player and
tattoo artist as he was a drummer.
He enjoyed life as much as anybody I've ever known and I will always
carry that part of him with me.
I'll miss you, friend.
PS Say hello to Max Roach for the rest of us.
