R.I.P. Derek Dugger

Local drummer Derek Dugger passed away on Thursday from brain cancer. Derek was a mainstay in the local rockabilly and punk scenes playing in the bands The Poison Okies, Brian Dunning & the Rock ‘n’ Roll Trio, and The R.I.P. Tides, among others. On top of being a great drummer he was a super nice guy. I interviewed Derek as part of the Featured Band section of the third issue of (for The Poison Okies). He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Derek's family and friends.

Rest well Derek and keep those beats going up in heaven.
