Maybe this is old news to some of you - I just discovered this tonight.

 

David Kulju - known around these parts as tomservo years ago - died back in December (2013).

 

He put out a couple of excellent albums.

 

Ugh... he came up on iTunes, and I went looking for him on the net to see what he was up to.  Never expected to be confronted with this news.

 

Sad stuff.  :(

His obit said he died suddenly, in a hospital.  No idea beyond that.

Wow.  Dave was one of the members who I looked up to.  I also have a couple of his albums and even exchanged messages at some point when he had been MIA between forum crashes.  He was a really nice guy, and excellent musician/producer.

Pretty tasty. So a few months ago I was talking about how certain bass players seem to have a very minimal right-hand approach (as opposed to the way Geddy wails away at his strings). The bass playing here is a good example of that.

The space in this recording is ridiculous and the guitar tone gives me chills!  This is one of those cases of not being "discovered" by the industry.  He is very talented and if he had the chance to open for Rush or Yes back in the day I think he would've had a nice size following...

Very sad to hear. People drop off and you expect them to go on IRL. My condolences to his family. :(


Please buy my books so I can send my girl to a decent school.

If you google his name you'll see he did have a small fan base, so at least some of us noticed.  I will treasure the albums even more now (both are signed, one personalized).  :(

ROCHESTER - David S. Kulju, 43, of Rochester, died suddenly Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013, at Frisbee Memorial Hospital.

He was born in Portsmouth Jan. 15, 1970, a son of Seppo and Linda (Babineau) Kulju of Hampton.

David graduated from Winnacunnet High School in Hampton in 1988 and the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 1993 with a degree in Audio Engineering. While in Asheville, he met the love of his life, Mary, and together they celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on Sept. 25th, 2013.

David was a talented software engineer at IBM and possessed a good head for politics. He was an avid photographer, cook and coffee drinker who loved to take daily walks and cheer on the Bruins. His true passion was music. David was adept with many instruments, but guitar was his first love. He was gifted at composing, mixing and recording and had released several group and solo albums, including a Christmas album he recorded with his wife, who is an accomplished flutist. His sharp intellect, fast humor and kind heart will be missed by all who loved and knew him. 

In addition to his parents and his devoted wife, Mary DiModica-Kulju of Rochester, David is survived by his sister, Kristen (Kulju) Byron, and her husband, Shawn, of Loudon; his uncle and aunt, Jouko and Judy Kulju, of Sarasota, Fla.; his mother-in-law, Dorothy DiModica, of Largo, Fla.; his brother-in-law, Charles DiModica, of Largo, Fla., along with his much loved nephew and nieces, Noah, Sadie, Charlissa and Charae, as well as many cousins and friends.

Visiting hours will be Saturday, Dec. 14, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Remick & Gendron Funeral Home - Crematory, 811 Lafayette Road, Hampton. 

Services will be held Sunday, Dec. 15, at 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 127 Winnacunnet Road, Hampton. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited. 

Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to Gerry's Food Pantry of Rochester, 150 Wakefield St., Suite 3, Rochester, N.H. 03867 or the Food Pantry of your choice.
