R.I.P. This Bike is a Pipe Bomb (1997-2011)

Sad news the other day, Florida greats This Bike is a Pipe Bomb are splitting after 14 years due to the loss of their drummer. The first time I saw them was at the Ernest St. House in 2004? Then multiple times at The Pit in Riverside, Harvest of Hope and Gainesville Fests. Their shows were always the biggest, craziest and positive (!)
It seems they will be residing in Chattanooga, TN where Terry and Ryan's other band Zippers to Nowhere is based.
Terry, the bassist/vocalist also owns Sluggo's, a full vegetarian restaurant in Pensacola, FL and Sluggo's North in Chattanooga. I've also had the delicious experience of eating at both locations.
