Chet "JR" White, former bassist and producer for rock band Girls, died on Sunday (Oct. 18) at his family's Santa Cruz, California, home. He was 40 years old.
True Panther Sounds, which released Girls’ music, confirmed the new via Facebook. "His heart stopped. No further details at this time," the post reads.
"The songs make the albums, but the production allows people to receive it and how you made that music sing!!! The gauzy buzz, the ocean of reverb, the restraint and then explosion, a sound that wrapped you in its arms but wasn't shy about its wounds. Your heart stopped, a big big sensitive but conflicted heart. Will miss you JR, I'll miss you. Thank you for everything. -Dean" the post concludes alongside two photos of White.
