This is a truly devastating story to have to write for myriad reasons, but Caleb Scofield, bass player for seminal Boston-area post-hardcore band Cave In (as well as founding member of Zozobra with Cave In’s Adam McGrath and he was bassist for Old Man Gloom and probably a few other bands I’m missing right now) as killed in a single car accident in his home state of New Hampshire yesterday. He was thirty-nine years old.
The horrific crash occurred at the northbound tollbooth of the Everett Turnpike in Bedford, a location that yours truly has passed through an incalculable number of times over my several decades in the area. He left behind a wife, Jen, and two children (Desmond, age 10, and Sydney, age 7). A YouCaring page has been set up in their name here; please consider helping out.
Rest in power, Caleb. You’ll be deeply missed.
