R.I.P.: Musician Jay Reatard found dead

Share on Nextdoor

This just in from our friends at Pitchfork: Musician and recent CL interview Jay Reatard is dead. It's too early for any info on what killed Reatard (Pitchfork has him being found dead in bed, a la Brittany Murphy), but it will be a little while before the incriminating toxicology report comes back from the coroner. Leilani Polk will have much more on Jay's life and times tomorrow, but for now, click below to enjoy the incredibly prescient video for "It Ain't Gonna Save Me."
