a myspace bulletin
and then i saw this one...
Everyone: The Ian MacKaye death reports are BULLSHIT!
FYI, Fugazi has been inactive for at least two years. If you go to the Dischord Records website, you will see that not only are Fugazi not touring much less doing anything at the moment, but that the only member of the band out there at the moment is bassist Joe Lally, who will start his tour for his solo album on the 17th. MacKaye's current band is the duo called The Evens, and I'm sure if he had perished, the Dischord website would be all over it. There also is NOTHING on any wire service feeds. Someone is trying to stir up rumors and trouble. I learned my lesson with these things: Research these things before you post them. Now please, let's calm down and try to stop this before it spreads further - I've already seen six bulletins, all saying the same thing, and all misspelling Ian's name the same way!
