Out Of The Blue & Into The Black: Sad Farewells & A Moment For Schacht

They give you this, but they gave us Schacht.

Hi there friends of the Emptywheel blog. The collective lost another longtime voice.

It’s better to burn out
than it is to rust
The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

Our friend Dr. Robert Schacht. Knew him for years online, and then met him personally at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in a bar. Wow. One smart and fun human.

He never burned out, he never came to rust. Bob Schacht will never fade away.

Thank you Bob Schacht.

Vaya con dios and Aloha.
