Guitarist Nick Curran, 1977-2012

Nick Curran passed away on Saturday, October 6, after a two-year battle with oral cancer. He was just 35 years old. After touring with Dallas rockabilly legend Ronnie Dawson when he was barely in his 20s, Curran moved to DFW from Maine to back Kim Lenz and the Jaguars. More recently, he'd been living in Austin, becoming a fixture at the Continental Club. He also played with the Fabulous Thunderbirds and the Flash Boys.

Check out Curran playing Sons of Hermann Hall back in 2010, after the jump.
