American Music Club drummer Tim Mooney dies

American Music Club and Sun Kil Moon drummer Tim Mooney has died.

The Petaluma-based musician and producer was confirmed to have passed away in a tribute message posted by American Music Club’s Mark Eitzel on his official blog yesterday.

It read: "I haven't seen Tim for a few years now but that still didn't lessen the impact of his passing. He was the drummer of AMC for many years. He was absolutely instrumental in whatever sound we had.

"His style was absolutely unique and as an artist no one could match what he did. He was a good friend to so many people and will be missed. What an absolute loss. I wish all the best to his wife Jude and his daughter Dixie. I have spent all day in a fog thinking about him."

In addition to performing with American Music Club and Sun Kil Moon, Mooney had worked with The Sleepers, Negative Trend and Toiling Midgets and had recently concentrated on producing for the likes of Her Space Holiday, Portastatic and Enablers.
