    I've never had the chance to meet him but I spent countless hours listening to the Dregs. I'm sure that all the Dregs fans are sad.

    RIP T Lavitz...I can never get over hearing these kinds of things. I remember very clearly the first Dregs show I ever saw in NYC quite a few years back. Me and my friends actually hung out with Dave, Lavitz and Jerry after the show outside. He was a great guy and amazing musician.

    What? Ah man, T was really cool. I met him a few times after Dregs gigs and he was really nice (as they all were).

    I also heard he was really close to joining the Grateful Dead in the early 90s. However, they went with Vince Welnick because he also sang. T formed the band Jazz is Dead (instrumental Dead covers) with some other great musicians and made some great stuff.

    RIP T Lavitz

    I stepped upon the platform, the man gave me the news
    He said "You must be joking son, where did you get those shoes?"
