Motorcycle Accident Stops the Music
Terrible news hit the Tampa Bay music scene last weekend that Ryan Fujiki-Hastings died in a Tampa motorcycle accident. TBO.com reported that Hastings traveled north on 15th Street and lost control of his motorcycle. After being ejected from his bike, Hastings struck his head on an oak tree. Hastings died hours after emergency personnel took him to Tampa General Hospital for treatment.
Mr. Hastings’ most notable work was with the band “Candy Bars.”
The debut album, On Cutting Ti-Gers in Hald and Understanding Narravation, released to high praise in 2006. Ryan will be remembered as “ a great drummer and dear friend.”
Candy Bar’s publishers, New Granada announced that from September 10th and on they will all proceeds from On Cutting Ti-Gers in Hald and Understanding Narravation will go to Fujiki-Hastings family.
Details are sketchy on what safety precaution Mr. Hastings took. The official cause of the motorcycle crash is still under investigation. Therefore, there’s little conclusions that can be drawn as to whether or not more gear would have saved Mr. Hastings. However, we encourage everyone to look at this as a reminder that safety. Someone close to you should not have to die to remind motorcycle riders to wear safety gear and protect themselves.
Please keep the Fujiki-Hastings family in your thoughts and if you like the Candy Bars’ album, buy it and support Mr. Hasting’s family through this trying time.
