FROM INTERNAL BLEEDING:
Our drummer, the heartbeat of the band, William Tolley died today. There are ZERO WORDS to describe the loss. He was a good, decent and honorable man who loved his friends, his family and the people he served. There will never be another like him. There are no words to describe the utter sadness and despair we feel right now. We love you Bill.
Bill was our rock. Our heart. And supplier of insane laughter. There are no words. The music world lost a very influential drummer, and the world lost a friend, a father and a damn good man.
FROM NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO:

Our hearts also go out today to the members of the FDNY, especially the members of Ladder 135 in Ridgewood
