This might be a stupid question, but can anyone tell me where this is from? Is it a specific reference to a movie/song/quote or was it something they came up with?

I just know it was on Benny's drum set and one of the Gaslight bootlegs (Boston, 08?) is named "Live fast, die awesome" and I was wondering where it was from.

He's the artist who painted Gaslight's mural in LA, if you scroll down far on his blog you'll see it

That's only half of the mural. I saw it while I was visiting LA, the left side's really awesome too. Not sure where there's a pic of the whoel thing though. That's the right side of it.

Yeah, the mural (which has been my lap top background for a couple months) was another place where I saw the phrase.

I'm still wondering who came up with the phrase or what its importance is though.

Someone I saw tweet "You want my advice? Live fast, die awesome" the other day and I was wondering if that was Gaslight related or not

If I remember right, the phrase was taken from a friend of the band who passed in a car crash. His name was Zach Finch and the drum head also had the initials Z.F. on it. I can't remember where I heard this at. Could have been discussed somewhere on the forum or an interview somewhere. Sorry, hope this is correct.

There is something about him on somewhere on the forum, I remember hearing about it before, I think he was part of the inspiration for the '59 Sound actually

found it, this is from the thread about the "Live Fast, Die Awesome" bootleg

liveit wrote:
"Live fast, Die Awesome" is a quote from their friend Zack Finch (thus the Z.F. that is also on the drum). He's a Jersey friend that was killed in a car wreck. Zack is one of the few they dedicated The '59 Sound to.
