San Francisco, d. 16.Jan.2009

Lou playing drumsAs you may or may not know Lou Decolator was killed in a fire at his home on Jan 16th. A long time San Francisco resident, Lou played drums in a number of bands including the Converse All Stars and Derailleur. He was best known for his work with the group L Sid. A great musician and a great friend, he will be missed badly.

I posted some tunes and photos of Lou here - http://broilervision. net/onthespotpc/private. Feel free to pass the link on to anyone and everyone.

SF: Fatal Fire Victim Identified


The San Francisco medical examiner's office has identified a 50-year-old local man as the resident who perished Friday in a residential fire in the 500 block of Shields Street. Louis Decolator Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene of the fire, which was contained to a room on the second floor of the building, fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.

The fire was reported shortly after 8 p.m. and controlled within 15 minutes, a fire dispatcher said. The fire caused about $60,000 damage to the building's structure and about $80,000 to its contents, Talmadge said. The cause of the fire appears to be accidental.
