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.
