RIP Allen Shellenberger

Lit is one of my favorite bands. They have been for about 8-9 years. I bought their "A Place in the Sun" cd when I was getting divorced and I would play it as loudly as I could while I drove in my car. It helped me feel better and get emotions out. Sometimes I'd scream. Other times I'd cry. All to their cd... I've gone on to get more of their older and newer music and have loved it all.

In May of last year, Lit's drummer Allen Shellenberger was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He felt a tingling sensation in his arm and as a drummer that was major. He fought a good fight for over a year. Yesterday he passed away. It makes me so sad and honestly, a lil scared. He was 39 years old. So young. So talented. :( ROCK ON Allen.

This is the video Lit played at a tribute concert for Allen and it is posted on their Myspace page as well...
