R.I.P. Descendents Co-Founder Frank Navetta



Sad news to report: Descendents guitarist/co-founder Frank Navetta passed away on Halloween. The band comes up fairly frequently here on A to Z, thanks to the great video clips of its Mississippi Nights show, and I'm sure many in town will be bummed out by this news.
