Lazlo's Corner

As I was preparing this week's newsletter sad news came in of a local musician who has left us.

Jason L. Dodds (aka J. Dodds), the former drummer of Particle Zoo (and then for Nova Social) died in the past week. I do not have much in the way of details, but he was taken from us way too soon.

Back in the day Particle Zoo played a lot of shows. I have a lot of fond memories, and J. Dodds drumming on stage, and personality off stage, is a big part of that.

Somewhere I have photos, live recordings, and I think even an interview with Particle Zoo from when J. Dodds was in the band. I'll have to go looking for them.
