All three members of The Yellow Dogs — an Iran-born indie-rock group based in Brooklyn, New York — have been murdered by another musician they kicked out of the band, after he sold some of their stage equipment without permission.
Earlier this year lead singer Ali had said “We should be like, I don’t know, something like Rage Against The Machine. But seriously, we just want to play music — we want to play music for the world.”
The killer – Raefe Ahkbar – approached a town house where the band was staying and first shot and wounded someone outside. He then moved through the building itself, locating each of his former band mates and shooting them dead. When police arrived he moved to the roof of the building and began firing down at them, before shooting himself to death.The victims were Soroush and Arash Farazmand, and Ali Eskandarian.
Imagine if Pete Best had done what this guy just did.
Here’s one of Yellow Dogs’ tracks — ‘The City’. RIP guys.
