R.I.P. Danny McClain, Grand Ulena Drummer - St. Louis Music - A to Z

I first heard Danny McClain play drums with Grand Ulena via a promo that was sent to me when I was writing for The Broken Face. Grand Ulena was truly a force a to be reckoned with in the avant noise multiverse. Over the years I felt like I got to know him through one of my closest friends, Travis. I met him once and saw him play on the same night in September of 2010. Though I didn't know him well, I know he will truly be missed. He died too young. He rocked so very hard.

* For more on McClain, see this article in the Riverfront Times:

Thanks, Lee. Danny will indeed be missed.

A small fragment of one big send-off:

Dave Stone sounds like your cat does at 3 in the morning. We pretty much all did.

Heavy audio visuals for certain.
