Sad. Now, when someone speaks of this show, I will always remember this kid dying.

Okay...I am a poster on this board, only because what I saw was very intense. I joined this board the night of the incident, only to find some solice from my experience. I certainly don't wish my words to be "gritty", but more the truth of what happened. I have done a lot of research since this event to find a cathartic resolve to what is in my mind - if I could scrape this image from my mind I would gladly do so - it was not at all enjoyable. There is so much speculation as to what occurred, but I know exactly what transpired in the last 15 seconds (or so) of this young mans conscience existence.

Please understand that I have and will maintain anonymoty with this...and I wish that this had never happened. I truly wish that I knew he was going to do this so that I might have been able to stop him.

Well, by that account it's pretty clear that he did it on purpose.

Question is now...was he high on something or not?

Well, that really drives home the tragedy.

This is truly sad. It will be interesting to see the results of the toxicology tests.

I keep checking for updates with the local media. I know the autopsy was perfroemd last week. I just keep waiting to ehar something about the glass was faulty, or something. I dunno. I still can't believe someone really had the desire to do that. MAybe its because i cant get the images outta my mind, but i so believe it was a tragic accident.... Mainly because right before it happened there wasnt any commotion, yelling, or anything. Nothing at all, and I was RIGHT THERE. Just crash. Fucking terrible.

And, i know its selfish.... but i hate it that when I think of my night with Furthur, all i think about is the accident. The music is an afterthought.

It's pretty apparent (for whatever reason) he did it on purpose. It's also apparent that no one in the general vicinity of him when it happened could have done anything to prevent it. Don't beat yourself up over it. If the autopsy shows he was high on something then maybe that will be the blame. If he was sober and did this then it was a foolish selfish act that everyone but he will have to live with. Sorry, i do not support suicide in any form. It's a chicken shit way out of life's problems that leaves a lifetime of sadness for the loved ones a person leaves behind when they take the easy way out.

I'm sorry you had to witness this. Just horrible. I think you are doing the right thing in sharing the story and getting it off your chest.

The fact is that life is often brings intense coincidences your way. Please don't think there was anything you could have done. There wasn't. Sometimes you just draw the short straw.

Dear Phil, Bobby et. al. How about we get this guy a comp VIP night.

I would suggest the following song for the occasion:

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd of said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I been in the right trip
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place
And I'm wondering what it's good for

I been the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a place
But I'm having such a good time
I been running trying to get hung up in my mind
Got to give myself a little talking to this time

Just need a little brain salad surgery
Got to cure this insecurity
I been in the wrong place
But it must have been the right time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein
But it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world
But it seems wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

Slipping, dodging ,sneaking
Creeping hiding out down the street
See me life shaking with every who I meet
Refried confusion is making itself clear
Wonder which way do I go to get on out of here

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I'd a took the right road
But I must have took a wrong turn
Would have made the right move
But I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a good place
And I wonder what it's bad for

Peace be with you!
