RIP NYC Musician and Ryan Adams & the Cardinals Bassist Chris Feinstein
He was 42. The Nashville-born multi-instrumentalist had been a New York fixture for more than a decade, producing and writing for artists as varied as Albert Hammond Jr. and Fat Joe. In 2006, he became the bassist for Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, who dubbed him "Spacewolf." Feinstein recorded three records with the band-- Easy Tiger, Follow The Lights, and Cardinology. "This is the saddest day of my life," Cardinals drummer Brad Pemberton wrote on the Lost Highway website. "I lost my best friend today...things will never be quite the same."
