R.I.P. Jerry Fuchs

Gerhardt 'Jerry' Fuchs - very much the hired hands for various DFA and DFA-associated acts (!!!, The Juan MacLean, Turing Machine, Maserati) died in New York on Saturday night at the age of 34.

In a bizarre incident, Fuchs and a friend became stuck in a lift at a benefit party in Williamsburg.  Having managed to force the lift doors open, they both attempted to jump to their freedom to the nearest floor.  Fuchs did not make it and fell down the shaft to his death.

Tributes from bandmates and friends alike have been flooding in with John 'The Juan MacLean' MacLean describing Fuchs as "hands-down the best drummer I have ever played with or seen for that matter."
