David Garabaldi...Tower of Power Hit by Amtrak Train

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

He was trying to cross the street to get to Yoshi's at Jack London Square in Oakland on Jan 12th 2017.
Dave and the bass player standing in for Rocco ran out of their hotel just before their 8 p.m. started and apparently tried to jaywalk over the tracks along with several others.
A freight train passed, then they ran out and were struck by another oncoming Amtrak train.

I would build a High Foot Bridge outside Yoshi's
so anyone can walk up the steps to get over the railway
Ideal for Non Locals

This is terrible news, Colin. We all
are so influenced by David and the
entire band.

My sincere best wishes for their
speedy recovery.

Yes its Terrible News.
Sorry Pete, yes a speedy recovery for both of them,
I was just looking at the Photos.

That Club needs to help artists near that VERY CLOSE Railway
the track is hidden. (from a British Viewpoint)
we would not allow that under our Health and Safety Rules

Was not aware of that misfortune. Great musicians to remember. Hope them a speedy and well recovery.

If you are wondering how David
and bandmate are doing:



David and Marc are both home recovering from their injuries. David is expected to return to the band in November. For now, former member Herman Matthews is on drums. We will keep you updated here and on the band's Facebook page:
