J.D. Salinger, the legendary author, youth hero and fugitive from fame whose The Catcher in the Rye shocked and inspired a world he increasingly shunned, has died. He was 91.
In a tribute to his life and work, I will post a video of one of West Virginia's most beloved hardcore bands Holden Caulfield - which took it's name from the author's aforementioned novel. Here is an earlier video of one of HC's many shows during the past decade at The Brickhouse in St. Albans. As the band was a revolving door of musicians with Dana White as its only original member, I think I can see Josh McClure and
Ryan McCullough Shawn Thumm on guitar, Jason Hanshaw on bass, and Charleston music legend Brian Pauley (Dirt Bear, Shindig, The Provos) on drums.
RIP J.D. Salinger.
