Mike Park has passed on some sad news about his former band mate from Skankin' Pickle, Lynette Knackstedt:

Lynette Knackstedt passed away on Friday, December 7th, 2008. We went to middle school, high school, and spent 7 of our adult years together in Skankin' Pickle. She was only 37 years old.

Lynette was the much loved guitarist of the San Francisco based sextet. After the break up of the Pickle in 1996, Knackstedt and trombonist Lars Nylander went on to form the 78 RPMs. Our deepest condolences to Lynette's friends and family.
