on monday, november 15th, at 9pm, kerby of sabertooth cavity and tenderizor sent his snare drum to heaven in a fiery blaze. the pyre was held at the drummer's home in albuquerque, new mexico. in attendance were a few friends watching sexy music videos on youtube.
kerby and the drum were first united six years ago. "i found her while browsing through music world in hobbs (new mexico) and knew i had to have her," says kerby. over the years, the two played with a variety of notable artists, including see you next tuesday, heavyheavylowlow, arsonists get all the girls, and the jonbenet.
kerby and his drum shared many wild adventures. recalls kerby, "i remember driving drunk and it fell out of the back of my truck in loving, new mexico, and i didn't even realize it till the next day. i went back searching for about an hour and found her laying in a ditch."
after a respected musical career, the snare drum enjoyed a happy retirement as a pot for a jalapeño plant in the backyard.
rest in peace, little tambor from hobbs. ashes to ashes, dust to dust, amen.
