Han called me from LA this afternoon where he is up doing some music work. He called to tell me that he had learned that our friend Scott Zensen had died today of a heart attack. He was 50.
Scott came to my birthday show last week and was thoughtful enough to give me a book of poetry. He was a very unassuming guy who absolutely LOVED the music scene here in San Diego, particularly the group of artists Han & I are very close to and connected with. He maintained an online music ‘zine called MyWeek in Music and I contributed some poetry to it off and on. I often wondered how he managed to stick with it. It was a labor of love through and through. His enthusiasm was pure and I know that everyone appreciated his support.
It is yet another shocking and sad death this year. There have been way too many.
