i need a religion to pacify my angst

Actually, there's nothing like an acute threat to one's own survival for angst.

Amy Ross of local Bisbee AZ band, Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl, passed away. I am unsure of the circumstances of her passing.



Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl were Tucson folk, from Bisbee, in town nearly every week to preform at Plush or Delectables on 4th Ave... They were Tucson staples of excellent music. Amy played the piano/keyboard/guitar and her husband, Derrick, played guitar and I believe bass.

This news is shocking to our small S. AZ music community and we are taken aback at this sudden news, as are lovers of NMWG's music and Amy and Derrick, as human beings, in general.

This band holds a great and dear space within my heart, and the loved ones I got to share their live music with. And the loved one I shared their recorded music with outside a bar...

This video is of Amy and her band mate/husband/partner in crime, Derrick.

If you knew Amy or of her talents and funky spirit, you know this is a great and tremendous loss.



RIP Peace, Amy.

much love....

Derrick, Amy's husband, has apparently taken his own life after the death of his mate.

I am in shock. Utter shock.

Hi L,
*thank you* You are so kind.

My heart is in shock... truly.
First the news of Amy yesterday and now the news of Derrick today.
I don't know what to say...We truly lost some of the finest, funniest, most humble, musically talented friends in the past couple of days.

Their music will live on... forever.
Amy Ross inspired me personally, and you never did find a nicer couple... loving, giving, willing to share.

I'm in shock.



(a very raw recording... very real. Them)

A HUGE void, Susan. Huge.
*thank you*

It's the spirits of each individual, Amy and Derrick, that speak for themselves. And when they were together, it was magic... and pure.
And rare.
And their music... OY! Wonderful. Just wonderful.

^^^^. Yes, thanks so much for sharing their music.
The music that always moves me the most is local talent. It's always so "real" and so much more intimate.
They certainly did have a great symbiosis in their music.

Thank you for taking the time to listen...
it means a lot. Truly.

I really don't know what to say about this loss except this ...
They were meant to be together... and they are.
If you EVER got to see them together... they were so connected, in every way.
The connection and collaboration was beautiful to witness and will be beautiful to remember
and live by.

Just listened to Tumbleweed and watched that awesome video and now I'm sitting here with tears streaming down my face...not just because it's so sad...but because it was obvious just how much they loved each other. And who would truly want to live after losing your soulmate, right?

I absolutely love their music.
