Dave was one of my best friends and I still haven't been right with this...
I don't even know where to start....but one of the most beautiful memories I have of Dave was in the summer of '03, we walked across the Ben Franklin Bridge. It was a sunny day we stood in the middle of the bridge and felt so moved. He was one of the most spiritual friends I have had. I feel honored that I had the chance to play with, inspire, and be inspired by this man that I so believed in....
**i miss u(and rebel does to)**

I was bored at work and checking up on old bands I used to listen to and came across this site. I was very sorry to hear that David had died. I first got into GLU back in 1995 when I read an article about them as a cross-between NIN and Alice in Chains, which are two of my favorite bands. While I can see where the reviewer made the comparison, GLU stood on its own for me after I bought the first two records. I was able to see them New Year's Eve 1995 in Cleveland opening for Filter. David was sick and they played a shortened set, but what they did play was great. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to see them again. I bought So-Called Space Age when it came out and was shocked to hear "Mouth" on the radio in Dayton, Ohio. I downloaded Up From the Floor from a GLU website when it looked like it wasn't going to be released, but never really got into it. Now I'll have to give it a second look.
Going back to the NIN/Alice comparison, there are some strange similarities between David and Alice's Layne Staley. Beside being lead singers and having drug problems, they were both 34 when they died. Also, Layne lost his fiance Demri to a drug-related illness in 1996. Layne, unlike David, really didn't use music as an outlet for his loss, except for a couple of songs released for an Alice box set. Most of his friends said Demri's death was what finally pushed Layne into the drug-induced solitude that eventually led to his demise. I doubt David and Layne ever met, but maybe their shared experiences could have brought them close. Unfortunately, we'll never know.
My sympathy goes out to all of David's fans.

I was at that show too! I left during Filter to go to a party. I don't remember it being a short set, but then again that was > a decade ago.

I got to see them one more time at Trilogy 1996 in Cleveland, and then David Reilly in 2004 at The Lime Spider in Akron.

David, Miss you more than anything.

Me neither, a year. I can remember feeling my heart sink as I read a post on this forum. I thought it was a horrible Joke, until I went to David's myspace and read it on Dave Sherman's blog. I stared and read those paragraphs over and over again. Thinking...How could this happen? why now? David was all psyched about His tour dates, his cd. And then out of the blue he was taken away from us.

It sucks the big one that is all I know.

I've seen the love will complicate sessions, and I really liked it. Just to see Dave in his enviroment, doing what he loved to do, see his vision unfold take after take. It was amazing. I'll have to watch the dave was so fly video, and I think I'll do that right now.

Peace,

Josh

I was psyched about going to his MA show, and then I went online to find out the information about the show to read the depressing post. I then realized that...well...I guess I wasn't going to the show anymore :(
