I got a text from Scott last night that read, Shawn Cripps died in a wreck yesterday. Sucks. There isn’t a great way to break that kind of news. Scott and I play music together and the text was sent to the band we play with. Ross, who is also in the band with us said it best last night, Shawn’s muse never ran dry. If you’ve listened to Memphis Weirdos for any length of time, you know that I play The Limes often. I think Shawn was one of the best songwriters in Memphis. Shawn was killed in an accident in Missouri on Sunday morning. He was 54.
