Our condolences go out to the family, friends, and fellow fans of Aleister Tennyson Hobbs of Dead Sea Surfers. Aleister lost his battle with cancer and passed away on October 11, 2011.
After being diagnosed with diabetes in 1999 and dealing with organ failures as a result, Aleister rallied back and turned to music with a vengeance. In November of 2010 however he was diagnosed with throat and neck cancer and chose radiation and chemotherapy over surgery.
In May of 2011 we featured Dead Sea Surfers on Episode #60, and we will miss Aleister and his music.
His funeral was held on Thursday, October 13th at the Akard Funeral Home. He is survived by his wife Beverly.
