RIP Edward McMichael aka "Tuba man"

I just learned that Tuba Man (Edward McMichael) from Seattle died the other day. It said that he died days after being kicked in the face by a group of teens. If you did not know Tuba man, he was known for hanging outside Quest and Safeco field jamming out on his tuba. Above is a video that I had on my phone of Tuba Man playing "My Sharona" outside of a Foo Fighters concert at the Key Arena. I wish it was a better demonstration of his talents, but this is all I have. He was a good man. I have lost faith in this world knowing that there are people that can do such a horrible thing to such a giving person. He didn't do anything wrong, just gave the beautiful gift of song. RIP your presence will always be remembered in my mind.
