"On Saturday February 22, 2003 the VINDICTIVES lost founding member Robert "DR. Bob" Nielsen to a heroin overdose at appoximately 8 am. He is survived by his son Matt and wife Paula. He was 49 years old."
We here at Punknews.org pass on our condolences, and hope that maybe this might wise people up to the fact that drugs *aren't* good, and when you do them people don't think that you're cool.
