Members of the Classic Alternative music world have been reflecting on the passing of Pylon Guitarist and Founding Member Randal Bewley, who died this week after suffering a heart attack on Monday while driving, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.
Bewley and his bandmates started Pylon in 1979. They are considered one of the most influential bands of the early new wave era and once referred to by Fred Schneider of the B-52s as “The best band to ever come from Athens.”
Pylon’s best work includes the singles “Cool,” “Danger 2” and “Stop It.”
The Athens Banner-Herald this morning put out an article on fans and friends’ thoughts on the band and memories of Bewley
