What is it about the U.S. that sometimes brings out the worst in people. There is such a violent culture and mental health crisis in our country that news like this barely made the front page of the newspapers in NYC (one of the safest big cities in the U.S.) as there was another more horrific murder in Bryant Park featured the same day instead.
This is not how this band dreamed of making it big I’m sure. I know these guys are from Iran but to say there is a mental health crisis in the U.S. is an understatement.
It’s as obvious as walking down the street in NYC on a daily basis. People need help. Ever notice, fellow New Yorkers, how mentally ill people can still act quiet sane (I.e. attacking old ladies or women as opposed to big thugs or an athletic male). Mental illness is not excuse for destroying life!
We are slowly but surely destroying ourselves… with seemingly no shot of redemption or coming back from the brink. Everyone is angry and feels they’ve been dissed and therefore doing whatever they can to screw their fellow man… I’m depressed.

RIP Yellowdogs. I didn’t know you or your music but I feel for you.
