Wednesday To-Do: Aug. 25

Arkansas lost a musical hero in Windy Austin a few weeks ago. This week, we say goodbye to another.

Luke Hunsicker died Monday morning after a two-year battle with brain cancer.

Luke was 29 and is most recently known as the bassist for the Little Rock-based American Princes. According to a memorial post yesterday at Arkansas Times’ Lindsey Millar, Hunsicker was much more than a bass player.

From Rock Candy:

He drew. He worked with pastels. He sewed. He sculpted, earning the awe of high school friends as a senior when Parkview decided to purchase “Bucket Boy,” a self-portrait sculpture, from the torso up, coming out of a five gallon bucket. And he cut hair in a barber chair in his house. Usually in exchange for a six-pack.

A memorial service is in the works and is scheduled for Saturday. Stay tuned to Rock Candy for details.
