I keep reading this and hearing the word "Retard" in my head and I thought he was some Westley Willis style mentally challenged artist or something.

Word is that he really liked drugs.

His band quit on him a few months ago. He blamed that on them being spoiled pussies though.

daaaamn. i used to love the lost sounds. dude was on some serious crank though. which led to the breakup of him and alicja which led to the breakup of lost sounds which led to his ultra-shitty solo career

i would have never listened to this dude if he hadn't died

turns out i like his music

found this on another board - referencing a comment left on a news article, by someone JR was feuding with:

"He tried to attack us with a chainsaw after throwin around wads of money and burnin 20s and askin us if we thought he was a sellout but he was so fd on coke he couldnt even turn it on then he hit me in the face with a disco ball full of sand and cracked my nose open and kicked us out of his house after he invited us there to stay there and i was all bloody and my friends slashed his tires it sucked He was smokin coke out of a skull bong and freebasin and had 50 grand in his closet"

sounds legit right?

We opened for Jay Reatard over the summer. He seemed really laid back, and said he didn't drink. Anyway they were great.
