The superstition is that deaths come in threes, and one day after Jay Reatard, two more musicians made the news this morning, one of them in the Bay Area. Philly soulman Teddy Pendergrass died at age 59 last night of complications related to colon cancer. And reports that 24-year old Dewey Tucker, was shot and killed Tuesday night on I-80 near Crockett as he drove to band rehearsal in Oakland. Tucker was a respected bassist who played with Lauryn Hill, Kev Choice Ensemble, and the Coup. Very sad news.
