Kirt Taylor passed but his Facebook page is very much alive. Today, June 26, would be his birthday. Many of his friends are posting on his page, wishing him happy birthday. Here are some of the posts:

Happy Birthday big brother, I miss you so damn much. I have to admit there are so many feelings that I have going on; anger, sadness, but also a happiness because I know that you are with me always. I keep thinking of that time I came to Eugene to see you play (Over the Line: still the shit!!), I snuck out of the house (SOoo much trouble when I got home) and was lucky to have friends that understood how important it was to be there. I was too young to get into the bar you guys were playing at, but instead got to hang out in the van (totally named dropped that you were my brother and got called on it : ), which was so much cooler than seeing the show. I've looked up to you my whole life, and no matter what you were there. Miss you doesn't cover it. Love you always.

In honor of Kirt Taylor's birthday I'd like to gift everyone the album we were working on before his untimely death. The release last month was bittersweet; His gift to the world was music & I know he'd want you to hear this.
