(Billboard) Randall Bewley, guitarist and founding member of new wave band Pylon, died Wednesday (Feb. 25) afternoon after a heart attack on Monday in his hometown of Athens, Georgia, according to a report by The Athens Banner-Herald.

Bewley was driving on Monday (Feb. 23) when his van drifted off the road and tipped over, according to an email circulated by bandmate Vanessa Hay.

Pylon was formed in 1979 by University of Georgia art students Bewley, bassist Michael Lachowski, drummer Curtis Crowe and Hay - then Vanessa Briscoe - on vocals. The group was part of Athens' art oriented dance party scene that also included groups like the B-52's and R.E.M., each of which have often cited Pylon as a favorite and influence. - more on this story
