Appleseed Cast Suicide?

I’ve received this e-mail almost a dozen times this weekend. It’s not true, right? Who the fuck would start such a rumor?

Subject: Christopher Crisci of the appleseed cast — suicide

I just wanted to give you a heads up about something huge that happened this week.

There was a rumor from people in the Lawrence, KS area that Christopher Crisci of the band The Appleseed Cast committed suicide earlier in the week which is why they didn’t play in the Lollapalooza last band standing finale event in Chicago.  Last night, this was confirmed by a source close to the band.  I have been told that they will release a statement soon.
