Jay Bennett: Misunderstood

Take the guitar player for a ride; He ain't never been satisfied; He thinks he owes some kind of debt; Be years before he gets over it...(Wilco -Misunderstood)

The corner is a little darker this week as former Wilco guitar player Jay Bennett passed away. From the Chicago Sun Times.

Jay Bennett, a rock musician with deep ties to Chicago best known as a former member of Wilco, died early Sunday morning in downstate Urbana, where he had been running a recording studio, according to a spokesman for his family.

The singer and multi-instrumentalist was 45 years old.

"Early this morning, Jay died in his sleep and an autopsy is being performed," said Edward Burch, a friend and musician who collaborated with Bennett on the 2002 album "The Palace at 4 a.m." "The family is in mourning and is unavailable for comment at this time."
