RIP Josh Burdette - September 2, 2013, 05:58 PM

He was the bouncer at the 9:30 Club. May be a suicide.

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

Really saddening to see that he's gone. In the mid 2000's I went to the 930 club probably every month to see metal bands. Almost every time he was there and always nice as could be yet he looked so intimidating. I'm gonna miss that guy, he has an integral part of the 930 club experience.

This is very sad news. I got a a call Sunday night at 2am to tell me not to get on facebook. I'm still in shock, and rather numb about this. He was a good friend. I'm playing the 9:30 Club tonight, and it certainly will not be the same without Josh in the crowd. It's been a rough few months for the 9:30 Club family.

Josh never liked the term 'Bouncer,' preferring 'Security' or 'Security Staff' instead. If you ever had the good fortune to speak with him or read posts on his blog, he was very insightful and extremely good-natured - it's part of the reason his passing at 36 yrs of age came as a shock to so many friends and family in the music community.

And today he would have been 37 It was definitely hard last night at the club. A good bit of familiar faces who would have been working just couldn't handle being in the club. Not the same looking out from the stage and not seeing Josh around.
