Tombol Malik, R.I.P.
A good man and a good friend was murdered last week. I met Tombol several years ago in Chicago. We had some good times, from partying with his brother at the University of Illinois to boiling in the heat at the Rocksteady Anniversary outdoor shows. Unfortunately, we had fallen a bit out of touch over the past year or two, and now I can only regret that I hadn't caught back up with him as I often planned to.
This article describes the tragedy.
His family started this website as a tribute.
Goodbye man. I'll see you some time.
