In a mail to our staff, Eric Cooley from Faith & Disease informs that Faith & Disease member Joaquin Tavares (1962-2006) was tragically killed a few weeks ago, January 12, being literally in the wrong place at the wrong time. A man shot Joaquin to death after being evicted from a South Seattle building. Joaquin Tavares, 43, was the guest of another tenant in the building. The killer faces a second-degree murder charge. In a reaction Cooley says: "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."
