Please send prayers and positive energy to Jon Woodstock’s family and friends in this time of grief

From Mike Apichella’s track notes to ‘Towson-Glen Arm Freakouts’ volume 1:

The unbelievable life story of former Glen Arm resident Jon Woodstock simply cannot be summed up in a paragraph. I’d say a 10 page essay might even be an inadequate way to tell Woodstock’s tale, so I am not even going to try to distill his complex, tragic, thrilling hurricane of existence….but I will say this about him: on his best days Jon Woodstock has been a great friend to me and one of the most positive influences in my life mostly for his haywire sense of humor, his raw honesty, and his masterful work as a multi-media artist. For all that and a litany of other things, Jon Woodstock is a legend in the purest sense of the word.
