Posted: May 06, 2009

May 6th, 2009

We at Swampland are deeply saddened by the news of another death in the  Lynyrd Skynyrd family. Bassist Ean Evans has died. As most of you know, he fought hard against an aggressive form of cancer, but in the end it was just too much.

We will pass along more information just as soon as we have it, and GRITZ is assembling a memorial page for Ean as well.

Fly on, Free Bird. We'll see you in the light. We love you brother,

Latest technology of exterior strobe light includes incandescent bulb and quartz diode that emit a clear high intensity of light or flashes at regular interval of time. The number of flashes per second may go up to 10 to 12 per second in exterior strobe light. This high rate of flashes may produce hazardous effects such as glare or fits or in certain cases may lead to nervous breakdown leading to paralysis. Apart from its disadvantage exterior police light play a vital role in Photography where all round illumination is required for short span. Theatrical effects or special effects are also produced due to use of different type of exterior strobe light. In some countries exterior flashing lights are used as fog light and in some cases to make a warning to other drivers on road. Postal vehicles in most of the countries use such a strobe light for various reasons. Some of the reason includes the awareness of other drivers to recognize the vehicle from far distance and give way for it to pass. Other reason may deal with the property of exterior strobe light to illuminate at 360 degree.

I was lucky to shake Eans hand a few years back and to see him on stage a number of times. He never got in anyones way or tried to steal the show, he just played that bass the way Leon would have wanted him to. I got to think there is one more great concert going on right now in heaven. To his family, all my prayer and to Ean, thank you for all the fine music you played and for carring on the Skynyrd name. And yes, we will remember you big guy!
