Little Rock lost another good fellow too soon-- Mason Mauldin, a solid fellow best known as frontman for Sugar And The Raw and Big Boots and more recently a skilled airplane pilot, passed away yesterday in a terrible accident. Thoughts and love going out to all those affected, and all the intertwined friends in our community. You are sorely missed, Mason!

Here's a clip from KTHV news on Mason and the LR music scene's reaction to his loss.
