i first heard planes mistaken for stars my first year in college (2001) & words cannot express how much this band has meant to me in every year since—specifically the voice & songwriting of gared o’donnell. my first & all-time favorite singer, up there with songwriters, to create an unparalleled sound with planes, one of the last great rock bands of my generation.

he passed on yesterday & rarely do i feel a sense of anything personal with these sorts of things, but his potential to be a long-standing voice was incomparable. a crushing loss.
