Default Mike Layton - Devastating News.
I'm saddened to have to report that Mike Layton, VDF member Mlayton, was killed in a motorcycle accident. I just read about it over at DFO. Here's the link... https://www.drumforum.org/threads/ho...sed-on.200579/

I have no words to describe this horrible news. RIP Mike.

He was good to everybody he came into contact with. So glad I got the chance to meet him and talk with him and call him a friend. Peace and love to his family and friends. Heartbreaking!
