Cosmic Hearse never likes to be the bearer of tragic news, but I woke to a phone call from my friend John Clancy telling me that the band Early Graves had been in a horrible van accident that took the life of singer Mahk Daniels. I only met Mahk recently when we did the Streetwise piece for Decibel but in that afternoon it became abundantly clear that Mahk was the real deal. A furious frontman while also being a really genuine and nice dude. I had looked forward to seeing this new friend around the hood, now I guess I never will. This sucks.
