I am so sorry to learn of Randy's death. Looking at his old photos on FaceBook and of old Pylon pix bring back such good/crazy memories. I knew him, but unfortunately never really had the opportunity to sit and talk with him and "get to know him." He was a definite part of my life in 1979-80. I am sad to know he's no longer here - he was too young to go. My sympathy to his family and to Michael, Vanessa, and Curtis.

Listening to "Dub" right now, this priceless, discordant, blessedly stripped-down rock music that no one outside of college stations and community radio would play back in the day. Fortunately I found that copy of "Crazy" (even with the wobbly pressing of "M-Train" on the B, which actually sounds even cooler) at my local record store....but I still kick myself for never getting to see Pylon play Tampa. Randy: I hope you and fellow Athenian Ricky Wilson are rocking out up there in Heaven. You will be missed down here.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I was at Gaines with Randy and really enjoyed getting to know him and seeing how well he worked with children. He will be greatly missed.

Robin,
I am so saddened by the news of Randy's death. I learned of it tonight on facebook--an old PPP picture was posted and that led to comments which led to me figuring out they were talking about your Randy. I have such fond memories of all of you and the boys (all grown now, I imagine). I am so sorry for your loss. Many, many hugs.

I met Randy when my band was able to open for Pylon in Orlando in 1990. It was my ultimate dream as a musician to play a show with them after seeing them many times in the early 80's while at Emory. They were all excited when I brought my Italian pressing of "Gyrate" for them to sign! I will cherish it always. Randy was a big inspiration to my guitar playing and I wish all of his family and friends my deepest condolences.

Robin, Blair, and Adam - you are in my thoughts and prayers. I was in Athens in January and almost stopped by to see you, but ran out of time.... I'm so sorry I missed the chance then. I appreciate all that Randy and the rest of you did over the years for Brian and me. I have never had the kind of community people like you provided since I left Athens - now almost 10 years ago.

Randy was my cousin and although I did not get to spend a lot of time with him, I grew up in Kentucky, when we did I want to think it was quality time.
As I was reading the other comments I was amaized at how far reaching his life has touched so many and the imprint he has left on them and the world. It seems as if the Hampton's have had that honor.
I am sorry I could not be there with the rest of the cousins in this time of greif but I will remember the visit I had in July 2008 and cherish it.
To the family: know our thoughts and prayers are with you. We love you.

So many memories are swirling around me, freshman year at UGA with Randy and other friends. All the crazy things we did BEFORE the Pylon days and the fun times during and after them. Randy was a wonderful friend and an outstanding person. Except for maybe when he introduced me to disco....I've never known if I should have thanked him or cursed him for it. Robin, all my best wishes for this difficult time and boys....never doubt how much your father loved you.

They were always called minimalists but Pylon got such a massive sound out of three instruments and one voice they tossed that label aside like so much confetti. Call them art rock and they would turn their spooky, mysterious songs into a sweat-drenched dance party. They understood pogoing was better than moshing, and that gift made their shows cause for celebration. I'll always be grateful to Randy, Michael, Curtis and Vanessa for the sheer joy they generated. May Randy's family take comfort in knowing the mark he made.
