RIP - Alistair (William Mysterious) Donaldson

Haven't been able to find out what happened. Had been trying to get a hold of him recently to sign a printers proof of the US CD longbox. The idea was to auction it for charity or something. Needless to say that didn't happen. A damn shame. His passing of course, not the fact I didn't reach him.

Prone to bouts of crazy behaviour by all accounts, my memory of him was as a gentle, quiet guy and a great player that influenced folks like Jim Sangster and J. Mascis. If I can find an obit then I'll link it.
