We received the following comment from Faeryn James Lee on our post about the death of Early Graves’ vocalist Makh Daniels:
Anyone wishing to attend Makh’s Memorial Service is encouraged to do so. He knows we Love and Miss him.
Memorial Service for Makh Daniels: Monday August 9th @ 2-5pm. Location: Good Shepard Funeral Home/ 901 Oceana Blvd, Pacifica, California. Please bring a food item along w/ you… and please re-post this information so others may attend to pay their respects.
We can’t vouch for the accuracy of this information, but Makh was from Pacifica, and there is a Catholic church (not a funeral home) at this address called The Church of the Good Shepherd. For those of you who live within driving distance of Pacifica, we’ll update this post if we get confirmation of the event.
People are starting to write about Makh’s death. The best one I’ve seen so far is by Cosmo Lee, who knew him, and recently spent time with him for a feature published in the current issue of DECIBEL magazine. Cosmo’s piece is at this location.
UPDATE: We’ve now communicated directly with Faeryn James Lee, who was a close friend of Makh Daniels, and the funeral information is legit. It can’t be easy doing what he’s doing right now, helping spread the word to people who want to say goodbye to Makh. Our thanks to him . . .
UPDATE: Thanks also to Stephen Parker from Arkhum, for sharing with us the news about a benefit concert this Friday night in Whittier, California, to help pay for the funeral costs. Details after the jump . . .
Here’s the message we got from Stephen:
On Friday, August 6th there is a benefit show for his family/funeral costs at The Bamboo Club in Whittier, CA, with Exhausted Prayer, Antagonist, and Destroy Judas. 8PM – $5
For anyone that lives in that area, please go out to this show and support
