Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co.) dies

Jason Molina of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co., passed away on Saturday.  Chunklet notes:
“Molina died on Saturday, March 16 from organ failure due to alcohol consumption, according to Chunklet. His last release was 2012’s Autum Bird Songs.”
Molina’s problems with alcohol were brought to public awareness in late 2011, when the Molina family posted a plea for contributions to Jason’s medical fund on the Magnolia Electric Co. website. They wrote that over the last two years, he had been in and out of rehab. He did not have medical insurance, and had been in convalescence working on a farm in West Virginia.
