Isaiah ‘Ikey’ Owens, a Long Beach, CA musician and member of Free Moral Agents, De Facto, The Mars Volta and Jack White’s touring band was found dead in his hotel room in Cholula, Mexico this morning. His influence and contribution to the Los Angeles music scene will be sadly missed and will have a sincere impact around the globe. Jack White has cancelled the remainder of the Lazaretto tour while the rest of the music community orbits in shock. RIP Ikey, Frances The Mute will forever be the most powerful piece of art I’ve ever consumed.
