Boy, the coma question is really tough. Some people are just fighters and you keep thinking they have the ability to pull through. But five years? Man, that would be tough. Sounds like he was a good guy, too bad.
Yeah. I can't imagine the toll it took on the band. . . They were on the verge of just calling it quits as they were recording Lovers (which has not been released because was they were finalizing it -- the accident happened). He had showed a lot of signs of improvement, so they kept him alive. If it was me in that state, I'd of just wanted to pull the plug. But the guy was a big spirit and we all had hope he would be jammin' again.
Hopefully they release Lovers in honor of his memory. What I heard from it (that they leaked) was absolutely blistering.
