The Cardinals' Chris Feinstein Passes Away (download final RA/Cardinals show)

Chris Feinstein, bassist for The Cardinals (who played extensively with Ryan Adams), passed away on December 15, 2009 in his NYC home. He was 42 and no further details have been released.

Ryan Adams and the Cardinals is undoubtedly one of my favorite all-time bands -- and Chris Feinstein was a huge addition to this talented musical group (after joining in 2006). Feinstein contributed to Easy Tiger, Follow the Lights, and Cardinology. A talented musician and, by all accounts, a great guy. His other work included: producing the I Am Sam soundtrack, appearing on Gin Wigmore's Holy Smoke, contributing songs to Santigold's debut album, and performing alongside The Strokes' Albert Hammond, Jr..

As a special tribute to Feinstein, I have posted the full bootleg of Ryan Adams and the Cardinals' last show -- on March 20, 2009 at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA. I was fortunate enough to be at that show, and it was an instant classic. He will be greatly missed.
