Last week, members of three local bands were involved in a fatal car accident in Skokie. John Glick of The Returnables, Doug Meis of The Dials and Michael Dahlquist of Silkworm were simply sitting at a stop light at the corner of Niles Center Road and Dempster Street when a 23-year-old woman slammed in to their parked car at almost 70 miles per hour in an apparent suicide attempt. All three men were killed in the incident and three others were injured. Sincere condolences to all friends, family and fans affected by this bizarre and tragic accident.
