Details are scarce, but I've been informed that Johnny was found dead at his house today. That's all I know right now.



*** For those that wish to attend the service please
email Joe Cruz at cruuuzzz@comcast.net ***



**NEW***
This just in

Joe Cruz here. I am johnny's friend and roommate. Thank you all for your well wishes. The laubach family thanks you all. I have no word on a service yet. I know Johnny requested creamation. Sorry for the delay. We just got word that Johnny died from blunt force trama to the head, a freak accident. I am not going to speculate on the cause of his fall. We will miss you dearly, Johnny Ether.

All I can say is that I will let you all know when and where the service will be held asap. There will be a gathering at the Albert in inman park in his honor. Time and day TBD.

Thank you.
Joe Cruz.

I just got JE's call. I am stunned and saddened. Many of you may know him as the owner of East Side Lounge. But to me he has been a friend for over 20 years. Johnny was a great man and he will be missed by a whole city. The band I used to manage called The Changelings even wrote a song about him. "Johnny Ether's Great Escape", back when he was running Kaya.

I have just gotten confirmation from my friend Joe (whom Johnny was renting a room from). I'm stunned. Johnny and I were roommates on Van Vleck (In East Atl) for about a year back in 2002-2003. Sad

How did he die? Is there a funeral?

We played his music on WRAS. He was a talented and kind person. He will be missed.
R. I. P. Johnny.

Oh man, what the fuck. I was just talking to a friend last week who asked what he was up to, I said I hadn't talked to him in a while. Damn, I'm in shock.

He was bartending for Tia (the former owner of Kaya) at her new restaurant the Albert in Grant Park when we saw him last. Very sad Sad

From Joe (in a email I just received)

"For those of you who haven't heard. Johnny my roommate passed this morning. As of now it is considered due to sickness/natural cause. There will be an autopsy tomorrow to determine cause of death. Currently suicide has been ruled out. WTF! RIP Johnny "Ether" Laubach. We will miss you."

Sad
Johnny gave my first ever gig in Atlanta, at Trinity Lounge, opening for Blue States.
This saddens me beyond words...I really don't know what to say.
Rest in peace, friend.

Unfortunately it's beginning to appear that this was completely accidental. What a tragic thing... Sad

Sad

Eve saw something on somebody's mySpace profile, and directed me here... we are truly saddened and shocked.

Eve knew Johnny for many years, and for me, I got to know him when we started our weekly gig at Trinity on Wednesdays. I can't think of many other people who joyously worked so hard - Atlanta's nightlife has lost a great friend.

Crying or Very sad
