I will explain this message to all that didn't know. To make a long story short, the trumpet player (Brad Dunham) was not at a concert, so there was an internet rumor started that said he was dead. Thus the song (The untimely death of brad), and also the lyrics that sound odd if you don't know what they refer to. ("But isn't the trumpet playing haunting on this album", "If you see him remember to console him"). This also led to a single called "Brad is Dead". Thus, we can see the power of Internet rumors. Basically, people thought Brad was dead, and like all things, FIF turned it all into a big joke.

I was there at that concert.(Icthus in Wilmore, Kentucky April 1998). First Reese told us he died, but then said Brad couldn't be there because he had to go to his sister's wedding. He asked everyone there to go on the internet and start rumors that he died. I thought it was hilarious when this song came out on the album at that end of that year and couldn't help feel like I got to be apart of it. Man I miss those guys!
