So sorry to hear of Bill Rieflin passing away. A straight up person and excellent musician.

Seeing news that my old friend Bill Rieflin has died of cancer. You know him as a mighty drummer for bands from Ministry to later R.E.M. To me he was the kindest guy who worked with me at Tower Records SF when I was 19 and so uncool. Hadn’t seen him for a while but I am so sad.
