28 JULY 2015 - REST IN PEACE, JEZ KEEFE
It is with the greatest of sadness as we pass along the news that our dear friend, Jez Keefe (Jez Keefe Photography) passed away last night. He was a wonderful friend of ours, and of New Zero God, and we will always cherish all that he brought into our lives. You may remember Jez from his many photographs, including some with him wearing a New Zero God t-shirt. He also took part in filming some of the UK leg of the band's video, "Destination Unknown". Rest in Peace, Jez. May you be guided by stars ... Here's our two cents for the ferryman... Hoist the Sails! Safest of journeys, our dear friend... @>--))-----
