RIP Buren Fowler

Former Drivin’ n’ Cryin’ guitarist and REM sideman Buren Fowler has died. Though he’d maintained a lower profile of late, Fowler was very visible for a time. From Slicing Up Eyeballs:

His time with R.E.M. dates back to the mid-80s, when he served as a guitar tech with the band an played occasional second guitar on the Pageantry and Work tours. He joined Drivin’ n’ Cryin’ after that, and played with that band for five years, during which time the group recorded Mystery Road, Fly Me Courageous, Smoke and Wrapped in the Sky.

No cause of death as been released.
