Caspian Bass Player Unexpectedly Passes Away

Posted by: Jack Appleby (08/28/13)
Caspian bass player Chris Friedirich unexpectedly died Sunday afternoon. The band will pay tribute this Saturday at a benefit show Chris had organized for a friend's lung transplant. A statement from the band is in the replies - our hearts go out to the band and their families.
We write to you today with heavy hearts and indescribable sadness to tell you that our bass player, Chris Friedrich, died unexpectedly Sunday afternoon. We have lost a close friend, a true brother, and a presence that can never be replaced in any of our lives. Chris epitomized the heart and soul of Caspian, and in our own ways -- both individually and collectively -- dedicate ourselves to honoring his memory. We ask for privacy. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Dear Friends,

We write to you today with heavy hearts and indescribable sadness to tell you that our bass player, Chris Friedrich, died unexpectedly Sunday afternoon. We have lost a close friend, a true brother, and a presence that can never be replaced in any of our lives. Chris epitomized the heart and soul of Caspian, and in our own ways -- both individually and collectively -- dedicate ourselves to honoring his memory. We ask for privacy. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

We will be paying tribute this Saturday (8/31) to Chris by performing at The Engine Room in Manchester, NH. This is a benefit show for a friend of Chris's who is seeking funding for a lung transplant. Chris was instrumental in putting this show together, and is the only way we know how to honor his memory at this time. You can find more information in our events section for this performance.

We love you all so very much. "

Nothing bothers me more than unexpected deaths. Cannot imagine what the band is going through, losing a brother in arms.

Oh no...

These are great guys, all of them. No one deserves to lose someone so suddenly, but it's especially hard to swallow when good people have to take such a loss.

I hope he rests in peace, and I hope the band can cope together.
