"Youngblood" - Original Guitarist - "Magic Tramps" - RIP



"It is with deep sadness & sorrow that we announce today the loss of one of the founding members of the Magic Tramps (formerly known as 'Messiah').
'Youngblood' {a.k.a. 'Damon" & 'X') passed away 12 hours ago on 07/05/08 in New York City. He was with his only son and loved one...
Youngblood on guitar, along with Lary Chaplan on Violin and Sesu Coleman on drums created a magical tour that spanned for decades. Eric Emerson joined the trio and they became the 'Magic Tramps'. Youngblood will be remembered for his passion of art combined with music and visual presentation of everything he did. A huge loss for us, along with his family and loved ones.
He performed last weekend in NYC with his current band called 'American Dream'. His guitar style was unique, melodic and magical. His guitar playing on the Magic Tramps CD 'Kickin' Up Moonlight Dust' was a taste of his style. He will be truely missed and never forgotten.
A memorial will be held in the future as the dust settles.
A lover of Dali, Picasso, and the blues, he formed a multi-media mind of art and music. He was a brother - The Neon-Cosmic-Spaceman's music will forever be rembered. We love ya 'Blood"..."
