Jay was as full of life as anyone we've ever met, and responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist. We're honored to have known and worked with him, and we will miss him terribly." Reatard released many albums over the last decade with various bands, and four well-received solo albums, including last years "Watch Me Fall." Concert promoter Todd P twittered: "You were talented & troubled & both a great influence and a negative influence on a lot of people. you should not be dead."
