RIP Sean Roberts: Roll Model Demo

I found these mp3s on mp3.com ages ago, when the original site of mp3.com was sort of flourishing. It was the primordial beginnings of the mp3 movement for starting artists. These 2 mp3s were found probably around the early 2000s, if I recall correctly.

What I remember from stories that Tyrone told me via Pedro of Sunday's Best and who also was a co-worked of Tyrone. Tyrone would tell me that Sean had some issues with heroine and was at one point homeless in Los Angeles. Pedro tried to help Sean with housing and a job, but the urge of the addiction was so great that all of that was lain to waste. It was sad and disheartening to hear this.

Sean played all the instruments and sang.

I'm not really sure when Sean recorded these demos, but as you all may have noticed that Chad had left a comment that he helped Sean with these recordings. Hopefully we'll piece together a timeline for these tunes that Sean wrote. Here's the link to the 2 songs. NOTE: these are the way that I downloaded them from original form, as 128kbps mp3s. I'm hoping to get a higher bitrate files to pass on to all you folks. Hang in there, ppl!

  2. Hey Martin, it's all very true that he was a great person and that he would take the time to befriend most. A buddy of mine was also a fan of .30-06 and he wrote to Sean a couple months back. Sean complimented my friend's music and sent my buddy a bday greeting... That's how genuine Sean was... such a nice person besides being an awesome musician.
