From when we were 16 until 22 or so (we were exactly the same age), Jason Rhea and I were very close, even inseparable (or "best friends") during part of that time. Jason went in his direction, and I went in mine. I got the sporadic call over the past 5 - 6 years, and spent a couple of evenings hanging out over the past year and a half. I don't feel like getting into things right now. But I urge everyone to think and have respect before they post....I'll leave it at that. The cause of death is currently inconclusive, toxicology reports are still pending...it may not have been an OD.

Oh, man, that is terribly sad. Only hung out with dude a few times, but ......

definitely did not mean any disrespect. Jason and I hung out a few times about 6 months ago - he would always come hang out when I dj'ed at The Hitone - just relaying what was his best friend Carlos said. When something this terrible happens you just want to commiserate with others who knew him.

I'm really sorry for your loss Andrew.

Also, this is double sad cuz Carlos just lost his mom about a year ago ...

I didn't mean to come off in a grandstanding, look-at-me nature or anything, and not that death is simple, it's just that this is a particularily complex situation for those of us that grew up with Jason, or were close to him "back in the day" - there are a few of of us on the board. I'm not going to post anything else about this. I don't want to be one those people. One of the most irritating aspects of death is when people force others to deal with it, expecting sympathy, in person appearances, and such and not allowing people to deal with it on their own terms. People do this for attention....a "look, I care, and you're an asshole for not caring" type of thing. Ha, with each extra sentence I type, I'm becoming one......

Oh, and with that complaint, I was not referring to anyone on the board.

Now's the time for me to get this out in the open then. I went to high school with Jason, and hung out with him many epic nights. One night we were at some crazy decadent party and another guy and I asked if we could borrow his car. Jason, being the ever gracious friend, handed over his keys to two drunk 17 year old boys with a smile on his face.

This guy and I drove Jason's car to the store to get beer or something, and on the way drove through about 20 front yards. Why? I can't say. As an owner of a front yard now do I think we were idiots? Absolutely. That aside, we arrived back at the party and for some reason the car would only drive in reverse forever after that. Jason never once spoke an ill word to either of us, I think in complete understanding that when having fun sometimes shit happens.

He was a good soul, and I'm sad to hear he's gone.

thanks for your messages this weekend andy. we had a lot of fun together - the two of you were always spectacular at coming up with crazy things to do to keep us entertained back in the day.
Posted: May 14, 2007 5:27 pm
oh man, I am sorry to read this.
thinking about all you people who grew up with him...
I hope his crazy soul is at rest.
Posted: May 14, 2007 6:36 pm
and before anyone misconstrues it, i didn't mean crazy in a bad way -- more in a genius, always flying by the seat of his pants, crank phone call cracking up kinda way... JDR immortalized himself with me a decade ago, with that Candlebox call...

i am very sorry to hear this. r.i.p.
