Without Stewart Lupton there would have been no Walkmen. As young musicians, he pushed us all to do something original and dangerous and to avoid being boring at all cost. We owe him so much and will miss him tremendously.

RIP Stewart Lupton. I saw u in politics and prose in 2010 and was still too intimidated to introduce myself. Stole a bunch of your licks, as did many others. I’m sorry I never said thank you properly. So, thank you

Stewart Lupton. In DC in the 90s, in NYC in the 00s, he was always such an affable, kind person, and a talent I admired. And though I rarely saw him. was someone I always felt like was “there,” like I would always see him again. This also breaks my heart. https://t.co/rfOlV6P8ju
