RIP Jef Leppard

. . .

Most of us did not know Jeff “Jef Leppard” Davis, but many of us know his work. He was guitarist for Vöetsek and STFU, as well as recording engineer for Bay Area acts Acephalix, Vastum, Kerasphorus, Abscess, Population Reduction, Aerial Ruin, Apocryphon, and more. Those acts sound great on record, and Davis was to credit. Just recently I was driving around with friends, basking in the elephantine heaviness of Vastum’s Carnal Law. That was Davis’ hand of doom riding the faders and making lives better.

By all accounts, Davis made people’s lives better. You can read eloquent tributes to him here and here. Local pillars like him are the lifeblood of underground metal. On June 10, Davis died in a motorcycle accident that left his wife Nikki, also beloved in the Bay Area, in critical condition. Friends have set up a web page to track her progress and accept donations for help with medical bills.

Thank you, Jeff, for your contributions. Your work was strong and will live long.
