FOR SUPERGROVER

Spokane, WA

about +
Sadly, Steve (Supergrover) Albright lost his battle with cancer on June 29th, 2012. Rest in peace, Steve. We are going to miss you tremendously.

Several musicians from thesixtyone came together to pay tribute to a special guy, and a special band. The musical output was released here under the band name "For Supergrover".

Here is the story thus far:

Supergrover was a very active listener on thesixtyone, and he was a very funny guy. In May of 2008, he was diagnosed with cancer. Even after the diagnosis, he maintained a great sense of humor. Many listeners (and some artists) on thesixtyone showed their support for Supergrover by leaving messages on his wall and incorporating Grover (the muppet) into their avatar images.

Supergrover described 'For Squirrels' as his "favorite band that no one has heard of." They might have developed a much larger audience if tragedy hadn't struck so early in the band's career. Two founding members of the band died in a car accident along with their tour manager on September 8th, 1995. You can read more about the band here:

If and when all 20 of the covers have been completed, there has been talk of going through steps to legitimately sell mp3s of the covers with all proceeds going towards a cancer research charity.
