Rembering Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen

Rhymesayers officially made a statement on the passing of Micheal "Eyedea" Larsen this morning. The website is full of beautiful quotes from the many people whose lives were affected and impacted by Larsen. Along with that, a few different events are being held to celebrate and memorialize the individual who was not just an immensely talented and influential artist, but clearly a dear friend to many. I will repost that information below, once again, via Rhymesayers.

On Saturday, October 16, 2010, we lost our beloved friend, family member and artist Micheal “eyedea” Larsen at the age of 28. Eyedea, who was most notably known for his music with Eyedea & Abilities, Oliver Hart, Face Candy and Carbon Carousel, was an artist in its truest form. He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. In the days to come, we feel the focus should be on Micheal’s life, music and legacy. Let’s celebrate his life, remember his music and never forget what he has given us all.

We miss you. We love you. And, you will not be forgotten.

Micheal “eyedea” Larsen 11.09.81 – 10.16.10 R.I.P.
