Pete Frates, the former college baseball captain whose battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease helped spark a global fundraising movement to find a cure for the fatal neurological disorder, died Dec. 9 at his home in Massachusetts. He was 34.
Frates was celebrated around the world for popularizing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised more than $200 million for efforts to fight the disease. The viral challenge involved people posting videos of themselves dumping buckets of ice water on their heads and making a donation to charity.
“Pete was an inspiration to so many people around the world who drew strength from his courage and resiliency,” Frates’s family said in a statement.
Crap, one of my favorite bands ever. Thank you Neil for all the great moments. Seen em live three times.
Why? Because it’s hilarious. Travis Barker is a very good drummer.Explain why that's so funny?
Dude creates new and interesting beats all the time. He's fast as hell. He's versatile. He's a better drummer than what the haters think cause it's an easy go to to hate on him.
He's listed as Rolling Stone's top 100 drummer, noob.Why? Because it’s hilarious. Travis Barker is a very good drummer.
He’s not remotely close however to being considered by any serious music person the greatest drummer of all-time.
