Last Saturday, May 2, Jon Blank of Rockville, MD passed away of a suspected drug overdose. Blank was the bassist in Rezin and, most recently, Scott “Wino” Weinrich’s latest project; he played on Wino’s new album Punctuated Equilibrium and is pictured above playing with Wino at the 9:30 Club this past February. Blank was the youngest member of the Wino band and – at least judging from that one show I was able to see – his stage presence, like his playing, was hyperactive and entertaining. He will be missed.

Statements from Blank’s sister and Wino’s label, Southern Lord, are available.
