DARKOBIT: Joaquin Tavares

We've just heard of the death of Joaquin Tavares, the keyboardist with Faith & Disease. Tavares was shot after being caught up in someone else's argument - a man had been evicted from a building he was visiting in South Seattle; sadly, it was a man with a beef and a gun.

Eric Cooley from the band said: "He was a dear friend and most importantly in this context, a very talented musician and visual artist and Seattle resident; he played keyboards for Faith & Disease and headed a Latino-flavored project entitled Quinto Sol. His visual art was very impressive as well."

My name is Alma and I'm Joaquins's sister and I just want to say that we miss him with all of our hearts, Joaquin was a very talented and a brilliant artist, he never stopped creating beautiful art for a minute. To me and all his family was a unique and wonderful person.
