From www.johnbrownsbody.com:

Scott Palmer
Our bass player Scott Palmer [John Brown's Body] passed away today at 12 noon. As you may know, Scott was diagnosed with cancer in January of this year. As the bass player for JBB since 2002, Scott was immediately a family member within JBB, blessing us with his great warmth, humor, charm, and of course monstrous bass playing. We are sad beyond words to have lost him today.

Condolences can be sent to Scott's family:
Mr. and Mrs. Vince Palmer
PO Box 148
Pultneyville N.Y. 14538

R.I.P. Scottie - we love you.

A great band, Roots of Creation, friends of mine, have told me what a great artist and man Scott Palmer is. This is a terrible time for music. Let us remember our fallen comrades.

So sad. Loved these guys for years and actually got to chat with Scott once after a show. Its such a shame. Hopefully JBB will go on in full force... I will be seeing them tonight for free in Rochester. http://www.upallnightconcerts.com/jbb06.htm

Thanks for posting this story, and to all those that wrote. Scott was a tremendous person; immensly funny, generous, and interested in the world around him. As you also know, he was an amazingly gifted bass player with a low end sound like no other. We will all miss him tremendously.

Scott was a tremendous artist and an all around great guy. This is sad news. Fans will also know his playing from Knockout and the original DJ Logic Project as well as, of course, JBB. Thanks for the vibes Scott!
