Jay Reatard Tee For Charity

January 17th, 2012 at 3:06 pm by Gerard

As some of you already know, last week marked the 2nd anniversary of the death of Jay Reatard.  The insensitive-rock-history part of me sometimes thinks of the big pile of records he’d have otherwise made in those 24 months, but most of the time I think about the guy his friends and family miss so much.  This morning, we were given a virtual elbow in the ribs by the folks at Yellow Bird Project, who are hawking a Jay Reatard shirt to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  The shirt features a Flying V w/ the Gibson logo replaced by Jay’s initials.  So it’s subtle — you can buy one for someone who hated Jay and tell him or her what the deal is after they’ve been wearing the tee for a year. Thanks to Ruben Cox for the link.
